Biography

My main area of research is linking neuroimaging techniques with underlying biology in a bottom-up approach in order to better understand debilitating neuropsychiatric disorders and disorders of cognition.

My research focuses on how causal risk factors (such as rare and common genetic variants, or environmental factors), contribute to disease in terms of impact on brain structure and function and on developmental trajectory. I am also expanding my research in order to link human neuroimaging with imaging animal models of disease, with epigenetics, and with patient derived pluripotent stem cells in order to develop a true translational approach to the study of these disorders.
