I'm a Principal Research Fellow (Associate Professor) at the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre (MNC), Department of Psychiatry, University of Melbourne, where I lead the Mood-Psychosis Spectrum Research Group.
I study two of the most complex psychiatric disorders; schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, with an aim to better understand the nature of, and relationship between, behaviourally assessed cognitive (thinking) skills and underlying brain anatomy and brain function within them.
