I am interested in the mechanisms underpinning psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. My most recent project was investigating the role of copy number variations (CNVs) at chromosome 16p11.2, and how these CNVs confer risk of schizophrenia and autism.My previous projects include investigating the effect of prenatal stress on neurodevelopment and RNA editing, and examining the role of tyrosine hydroxylase in behavioural changes caused by Toxoplasma Gondii infection.
