I am a Reader at the UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences. I also work as a Research Associate at the MRC SGDP Centre, Institute of Psychiatry and collaborate with a number of people here.
activities and interests
Developmental disorders, cognitive neuroscience, behaviour genetics, imaging genetics
I am currently combining cognitive experimental measures, twin model-fitting, brain imaging, and genotyping to study different developmental pathways to persistent antisocial behaviour.
