Research Interests

I am a neuroscientist studying social behaviour from a biological perspective. I aim to disentangle how typical and atypical social behaviour is rooted in our brain’s structure and chemistry. I do this by studying the role of hormones, individuals with damage to the social brain, and individuals with personality disorders. I particularly aim to find the biological basis of our social behaviour by doing cross-species translational research.
