Expertise in molecular biology, genetics and epigenetics. 

Main research areas

Research interests include identification of genes that function in the pathogenesis of psychiatric disorders and brain vascular malformations.

Current research

Current research includes studying epigenetics (DNA methylation) in blood of neonates to identify risk factors for psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression and anorexia.  In addition, I have been studying DNA methylation in blood from twins who are discordant for psychiatric illness.
