Research interests

Ashley’s research broadly focuses on cultural influences on mental health, and specifically the way in which mainstream culture shapes population health. He is currently working on a number of projects investigating the cross-cultural significance of social values in influencing mental health, an intervention project geared towards eliciting positive behaviour change in young people, as well as a study exploring how cultural perceptions of happiness impact upon wellbeing.
