For nearly two decades I have been the Department Head for Academic Psychiatry at the Northern Clinical School within the Faculty of Medicine and Health at The University of Sydney, and the Executive Director of the CADE Clinic, which is based at Royal North Shore Hospital where I am also a senior consultant psychiatrist and clinical researcher in the Kolling Institute. Recently, I have been appointed as the College Editor for the Royal College of Psychiatrists (UK) and the Editor-in-Chief of the British Journal of Psychiatry.

As an academic and clinical researcher, I have more than 30 years of experience in the diagnosis and management of depression and bipolar disorders and as such lead several clinical and neuroscientific studies that investigate the neural basis of mood disorders and suicide. I have also developed binational guidelines for the management of mood disorders and conduct clinical trials for the treatment of depression. My research has been supported predominantly by grants from government bodies in Australia, such as the National Health Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and Australian Research Council (ARC), and in the US, by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

With more than 800 articles and 20 books and book chapters, I have been recognized as a highly cited researcher (top 1% in his field globally) and for my contributions to teaching and education, I have received the Mogens Schou Award from the ISBD. For my research in mood disorders, I have received the RANZCP Senior Researcher Award, the RANZCP College Citation and the Distinguished Professorial Achievement Award from The University of Sydney Medical School.
