Academic Interests

Khrista Boylan, MD FRCPC, PhD is a practicing child and adolescent psychiatrist who works in the general outpatient clinic at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton as well as on the affiliated inpatient unit. She is an assistant professor at McMaster. Her research focuses on two separate but intersecting adolescent mental health problems- oppositional behaviour and irritable mood. Her current projects are evaluating how these problems contribute to self harm behaviours and personality development and how the clinical treatment can be helpful, or potentially harmful, for adolescents.
