Dr Georgina Hosang


Reader in Mental Illness & Chronic Diseases



I am a Senior Lecturer in Mental Illness and Chronic Diseases, at the Centre for Psychiatry and Mental Health, appointed in 2017. I completed her PhD in Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London and was then awarded the prestigious ESRC/MRC Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowship.

I was appointed as a Psychology Lecturer at Middlesex University in 2012 and the following year moved to the Psychology Department at Goldsmiths, University of London. My work has been funded by the ESRC, MRC, the Richard Benjamin Trust, International Bipolar Foundation and Barts Charity.

I am the recipient of the Eli Lilly International Fellowship in Bipolar Disorder (2013) and the Samuel Gershon Junior Investigator Award (2019) both awarded by the International Society for Bipolar Disorders in recognition of my research contribution to the area.


Research Interests:

My work focuses on the bio-psychosocial origins of bipolar disorder and major depression. I am interested on the genetics-stress interplay and medical comorbidity in this context. I am also investigating hypomania in youths using twin data.
