Dominic is a PhD student at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, under the supervision of Dr Paolo Fusar-Poli and Professor Philip McGuire. Dominic’s research interests involve finding better ways to identify people at risk for psychosis and the interplay between psychosis risk and cannabis. His current studies investigate: a) environmental risk factors for psychosis and, b) different ratios of CBD:THC to find the optimum ratio that reduces the harmful effects of cannabis 

Before joining the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, Dominic completed an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London before working as a research assistant in the Social Neuroscience lab at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London.
