Personal Statement

My primary research interests are of the neuropsychopharmacology and of motivated behaviours (eating, drinking, drug taking). I have a keen interest in understanding the mechanisms by which pharmaceutical drugs can modify eating behaviour acutely, and as a psychopharmacologist / neuroscientist I am interesting in how chronic drug (e.g. MDMA, cocaine, cannabis) use can altar brain function/structure.

I also collaborate with Unilever Research and Development accross a portfolio of neuroscience projects.
