Researcher biography

I am a biomedical researcher at The University of Queensland, with over ten years of laboratory experience in molecular genetics and neurobiology. My research interests are in the development and function of the cerebellum, in addition to the role that genetic factors play in causing phenotypical changes to cerebellar growth, foliation, molecular patterning, and function. Currently I am investigating the link between cerebellar dysfunction and autism spectrum disorder. This research is funded by consecutive grants from the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative.
