Biography

I joined King’s College London in November 2014 as a Postdoctoral Researcher after obtaining a PhD in Biomedical Sciences from the Dept of Anatomy & Neurobiology at the University of California, Irvine. My areas of expertise are Neuroscience (BSc also from UC Irvine) and the use of neuroimaging to understand brain plasticity/development and how they relate to behavior. While working on the IMAGEN project based at the Social, Genetic, and Development Psychiatry Centre I have explored how the environment influences the development of the adolescent brain and mental health disorders. Since 2016 I have also been the Project Coordinator of the third follow-up of the IMAGEN study (www.imagen-europe.com). I was promoted to Lecturer in September 2018.
