I am a Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton. My research focuses on understanding gene regulation in brain development and function. In particular, I am interested in the function of enhancer elements in establishing and maintaining appropriate spatiotemporal gene expression profiles during cortical development, and how this is disrupted in neurological disease.
