Research interests

Brooke is a practicing clinical psychologist with research interests within adult mental health, particularly the use of technology (eHealth) to improve mental health and wellbeing.

Other interests lie within the areas of individual differences (temperament and personality), anxiety, trauma, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and emotion regulation.
