Research:

Mouse models and the genetic analysis of human subjects to probe the molecular basis of neurodevelopmental disorders


Education:

Postdoctoral Fellow:  Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto
Ph.D.:  National Heart & Lung Institute, U.K.
M.Sc.: University College London, U.K.
B.Sc. (Hon): City of London Polytechnic, U.K. 


Fields of Interest:

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
  • Molecular Medicine and Human Genetics

Research Interests:

Both deletion and duplication of human chromosome 7q11.23 cause neurodevelopmental disorders with unique phenotypic profiles, so offering a window into the genetics of human behavior, cognition and language. We use mouse models and the genetic analysis of human subjects to probe the underlying molecular basis of these disorders.
