My research focuses on understanding the oxytocin system in the human brain and the involvement of oxytocin in pain perception, social cognition and social decision making, both in healthy populations and it's implication in neuropsychiatric disorders, such as eating disorders or schizophrenia. A key focus of my work is understanding the mechanisms through which synthetic oxytocin affects brain function and optimising methods for the administration of oxytocin in humans. I also have a keen interest in educating the next generation of brain scientists. I am the Director of the BSc in Neuroscience and Psychology, a program that cuts across disciplinary boundaries to provide students with the required knowledge and skills to understand the workings of the brain and the relationship between mental and neural processes in health and disease.
