Her research program focuses on the prevention and treatment of depression and anxiety in young people, drawing from the areas of clinical psychology, population mental health and psychiatry. Specifically, she investigates how evidence-based prevention programs can be delivered at scale to young people through the school system and the community, and the role of technology to support the delivery of these interventions. She also has an interest in the contribution of poor sleep to mental health problems.

She is currently leading the Future Proofing Study, the largest prevention trial globally, which investigates the large-scale delivery of digital programs to prevent student depression across 200 Australian schools.
