Current work and interests

Background and experience
Emma’s background has mostly focused on the mental health of young people. Her PhD examined the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder and why the diagnosis is more common in women and those who have experienced trauma. Emma then worked on a pilot study of a mental health app for young people globally. Emma is interested in the interplay between physical and mental health of young people.
