My research aims to understand the role of brain chemistry in mental illness and to identify different subtypes of Illness that might show different responses to drug treatments. In particular I am interested in how differences in brain glutamate levels may predict response to antipsychotic drugs and antidepressants. I am also involved in research on the gut microbiome and it's role in depression and anxiety, as well as on ketamine and psilocybin in the treatment of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). My research encompasses a variety of methods including clinical trials, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) imaging and psychological testing.
