Personal Statement:


I completed a BSc in Neuroscience at the University of Sheffield before moving to UCL to study for my PhD with Steve Wilson. I then spent ten years as a postdoc working in EMBL Heidelberg, the Helmholtz centre Munich and the CNRS (Gif/Yvette, France). My current research investigates the genes and neural circuits that control aggression, with links to human psychiatric disorders that include aggression as a symptom such as autism or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. I am also interested in promoting fish welfare by improving the techniques used to handle them in the lab. Recent funding has come from the NC3Rs, Marie-Curie foundation and the EU framework programme.
