Equipment & Techniques
I am a postdoctoral cognitive neuroscientist at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge. I work as part of the Genomic Disorders and Cognitive Development lab group (www.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/our-research/baker/), led by Dr Kate Baker. My research aims to improve the understanding of brain function and symptomology in rare genetic syndromes associated with neurodevelopmental and psychiatric problems. I work with primary and secondary human phenotypic and neuroimaging data, in addition to mouse in-vivo electrophysiological signals and in-vitro cellular functional assays. I enjoy conducting multidisciplinary research that integrates multiple levels of information to investigate a research problem. I am involved in the Brain and Behaviour in Neurodevelopmental Disorders of Genetic Origin (BINGO) project (www.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/bingo/) and the phenotypic and brain function characterisation of synaptic vesicle cycling disorders, including SYT1 de-novo variants.
