Research interests

Dr Macdonald conducts research in the following areas:

  • Childhood, adolescent and young adulthood predictors of caregiving and the parent-infant bond.
  • Paternal mental health and wellbeing: Family history and individual factors that influence the experience of fathering and predict paternal behaviours and mental health problems (e.g., risk for depression, anxiety, stress, substance use and anger) and wellbeing (e.g., positive work/family balance, purpose in life, secure family attachments, social engagement)
  • Longitudinal and intergenerational pathways of development.

Dr Macdonald's research draws on data from the Australian Temperament Project Generation 3 (ATPG3) study, the Victorian Intergenerational Health Cohort Study (VIHCS) and the Men and Parenting Pathways (MAPP) study. The first two are prospective intergenerational studies investigating the development of offspring born to participants in the original main cohorts. The MAPP study is an ongoing 5- year longitudinal study exploring men's psychological health during the peak age for having children.
