Areas of expertise I lead a research group that spans the clinical and preclinical research border. Our main interests are in the brain mechanisms underlying anxiety, depression, addiction and sleep disorders.

Our preclinical work strives to develop new treatments of these disorders by understanding how current treatment work more explicitly and by discovering new drugs which may provide equal efficacy with a different side effect profile.

The clinical research is founded in our outpatient?s base at the Bristol Royal Infirmary where we run specialist clinics in the treatment of these disorders and are developing new investigative techniques such as neuroimaging and EEG recordings to evaluate these in more detail.
