Dr. Kreindler he has been working in the Division of Youth Psychiatry at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto since 2000. He is interested in mood as a dynamic process embedded in time – in particular, understanding whether mood variability over time can help to clarify the mechanisms that give rise to mood. A secondary research interest, in conjunction with the Centre for Mobile Computing in Mental Health, is the application of information technology to clinical psychiatry and exploring the role of eHealth and mHealth in mental health.

What I do when I'm not working

One key element of my self-care is leaving my work at work. I also make sure to leave enough time for family as well as my hobbies. In particular, I have found sabre fencing to be terrifically therapeutic – in particular, the screaming-while-whacking-other-people-over-the-head-with-a-blunted-sword aspect is wonderful stress relief.
