    Personal Statement

    I am a neuroscientist, focussed on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying disorders of the nervous system.

    My research career began in Canada under the supervision of Prof Mel Robertson (Queen’s University) investigating how inducible heat shock proteins modified synaptic transmission. Following the award of my PhD, I received a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada Postdoctoral Fellowship and came to the UK to study the role of Stxbp1/Munc18 in exocytosis in the group of Prof Bob Burgoyne. Following my postdoctoral training, I was first awarded a Research Councils UK Academic Fellowship and then a lectureship to establish my own lab at the University of Liverpool.
