My overarching interest is in the role of genetic and environmental risk factors in the development of neurodevelopmental disorders such as schizophrenia, autism and related personality disorders.

In my work I employ a translational approach to study how genetic and environmental factors enhance risk for mental illness.

I am particularly interested in how identified genetic risk factors affect learning processes in the brain; abnormalities in which underlie the key symptoms seen in a range of mental health problems.

Overall I believe that understanding how genetic risk factors influence the brain and how these responses are modulated by environmental stimuli is crucial to the development of new treatments for psychiatric illness.

In addition to my pre-clinical work I also conduct clinical work and research in the fields of adult neurodevelopmental disorders and early psychosis.
