Dr. Goldman-Mellor is a psychiatric epidemiologist whose research interests focus on understanding the social determinants of depression and suicidal behavior; the complex links between psychological problems, violence, and poor physical health; and the etiology of mental health disparities. Much of her current work examines these questions in adolescent populations, but she has a broad interest in the lifecourse epidemiology of psychological disorder and suicidal behavior. She has expertise in using complex longitudinal cohort data, and has worked with international cohort databases as well as survey and healthcare data from California.
