Dr Eugene Davids is one of ten young scientists from across South Africa who were elected to become members of SAYAS (South African Young Academy of Science) in 2016.
Davids, from the Department of Psychiatry and Mental Health, is a post-doctoral research fellow in the Adolescent Health Research Unit (AHRU) in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
He holds a master’s and doctoral degree in child and family studies from the University of the Western Cape. His research interest is in parenting style, particularly the impact of parenting style on young people’s decision-making about health.
Davids’ research is important in South Africa, where parenting, families and communities have been traumatised and fractured for a range of historical, economic and socio-political reasons.
