Research Activities:

My research is aimed at understanding the behavioural, genetic, pharmacological and physiological mechanisms of a range of higher cognitive functions, including attention and executive control in both health and disorder. I have a particular interest in the genetics of psychiatric disorders, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
