I lead the Systems and Computational Neuroscience group in the Department of Psychiatry, and I am a visiting scientist at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. I am also one of the co-founders of the Cambridge Networks Network - a forum for academics across different disciplines who share an interest in Network Science. My research applies tools from physics, engineering and network science to fundamental problems in neuroscience and mental health. In particular, I am interested in the structure-function relationship in brain networks, from the microscopic scale of neurons to the large-scale connectivity of brain regions, in both health and disease. I work with a wide variety of multivariate data, including genetic and transcriptomic data, flow cytometry and neuroimaging data. I also study simpler organisms, such as C. elegans, which provide a testbed for methodological innovations as well as insights into generalisable aspects of brain organisation, brain development, network dysfunction and repair.
