My work utilises genetically altered preclinical models to understand the biological mechanisms underlying genetic risk for psychiatric illness.

In particular, I am focusing on the varied role of activity-dependent Arc and the protein complex of Cyfip1 and FMRP, which work together at the synapse but are dysregulated in a variety of neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorder.
