I am a Research Fellow within Cesagen and a collaborator within the MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics. My current programme of work examines:

  • Current developments within neuropsychiatry and behavioural genetics and their clinical, social, and personal implications.
  • The diagnosis and management of chest pain and angina and their impact on variation in patient outcomes (NIHR).
