Research

Kate Scott is a psychiatric epidemiologist and senior investigator in the World Health Organization’s World Mental Health (WMH) Surveys Initiative, a coordinated series of household epidemiologic surveys of mental disorders in over 30 countries around the world. Her interests are in cross-national psychiatric epidemiology, the inter-relationship between mental and physical disorders, and gender differences in mental disorders. Her research has been funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand, the James Hume Bequest Fund and the NZ Lotteries Board.

Kate trained as a clinical psychologist at Victoria University. She worked as a clinician in adult mental health in the Wellington region for several years before being awarded a Rutherford Scholarship to undertake a doctorate in experimental psychopathology at Cambridge University.

Post-doctorate, she worked for the Ministry of Health as a senior analyst in the national health surveys program until her appointment as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychological Medicine, Wellington School of Medicine. During her time at the Wellington School of Medicine she also worked part time as a Senior Clinical Psychologist with medical patients in the Liaison Psychiatry Team at Wellington Hospital. In 2011 she was appointed Associate Professor and Head of Behavioural Science in the Department of Psychological Medicine, Dunedin School of Medicine, and promoted to Professor in 2014.
