Personal Statement:

I have been working at the University of Leicester since 2005, first as a RCUK Research Fellow (2005-2010) and then as a lecturer in neuroscience and physiology. Prior to that I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Sussex (1998-2005).

Research in my laboratory is focused on neuromodulation, short- and long-term changes in neuronal networks and behavioural plasticity with a specific focus on the role of serotonin and nitric oxide. I work with both invertebrate (snails) and vertebrate model systems (rat cortical cultures, acute brain slices). Research in my laboratory is supported by the BBSRC and Wellcome Trust.
