I am the Research Manager at the Centre for Neuropsychopharmacology and am involved in the management and implementation of experimental medicine and translation neuroscience research projects. My main area of interest is the development and evaluation of novel PET ligands for neuroscience, as well as better understanding the cellular underpinning of the PET signal. However, I also have interests in other neuroimaging techniques such as functional and pharmacological MR.
