Research Interests

My research interests are centred on the neurobiology of substance use. I specialise in neuroimaging analysis and am currently involved in a number of projects looking at the neurobiological sequelae of substance use across the human lifespan. My primary project is a secondary analysis of data using the ENIGMA consortium’s addiction working group MRI data to investigate potential differences in brain predicted age across different substances of dependence.
