Clinical and Veterinary Neuroscience

Interests

I am Group Leader at the University of Cambridge, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, and Director of Studies in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at Christ’s College Cambridge. My lab investigates the neural, cognitive, and computational mechanisms of neuropsychiatric disorders, with the aim of translating techniques and models from neuroscience to clinical applications in mental health. I am particularly interested in combining discovery science with experimental medicine approaches to develop interventions that target disrupted body-brain processes across a number of mental health conditions.
