My over-arching interest is the pathogenesis of severe mental disorder. My PhD and post-doctoral work have focused on investigating the functional consequences of disease-associated variants in NMDA receptors. Future work includes exploring the impact of such variants in transgenic animals. My goal is to improve identification and targeting of treatments for NMDA-associated neurodevelopmental disorders.
