Galit Geulayov


Senior postdoctoral researcher

I am a mental health epidemiologist researching self-harm and suicide across the life course 

Research interests

  • Parental self-harm and offspring outcomes
  • Self-harm measurement and case-ascertainment
  • Follow-up care for individuals who self-harm
  • Inequalities in healthcare provision

Current projects

With partners in Australia and in the UK, I investigate the impact of parental self-harm on offspring psychosocial and cognitive outcomes in early life.  

I am developing a machine learning based tool for identifying self-harm in Electronic Health Records.  

I am the self-harm research lead in the OxWell School Survey OxWell is a repeated cross-sectional school survey on mental health and well-being of school pupils in England. Within this study, I am exploring help-seeking behaviour following self-harm, trends in self-harm over time and self-harm in primary school children.

Previously, I acted as the data curator of the Multicentre Study Self-harm in England and data analyst. This study involves collecting information on individuals who present to hospitals following self-harm. I studied trends in self-harm over time and the relationship between socio-economic and clinical characteristics with clinical care and mortality.
