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.
