Research Interests

My interests focus on uncovering the genetic architecture of complex psychological traits. Included in this is the use of post GWAS analysis methods such as pathway analysis and prioritizing variants for further analysis. I am particularly interested in using these methods to elucidate the basis of intelligence, schizophrenia, cognitive ageing, depression and ADHD in humans.
