I teach psychiatry on the Cardiff University Medicine MBBCh course, including small group teaching on suicide and self harm and communication skills. I also examine formative and summative psychiatry ISCE examinations. I am an academic mentor to 3 students on the course and have been involved in peer reviewing a psychiatry exam question book published by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. I have also authored/co-authored two genetics modules for Trainees Online, Royal College of Psychiatrists.

My research is on copy number variants (CNVs) in major psychiatric disorders that affect adults. I am particularly interested in the phenotypic expression of neuropsychiatric CNVs.
