Job Title

Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellow



Research overview

My main research interests lie in developmental psychiatry, with the emphasis on the examination of brain structure and function using neuropsychology and neuroimaging. I am currently carrying out a Wellcome Trust funded study examining the autism spectrum and personality types related to schizophrenia.
