Profile

My research focuses on understanding social behaviour, from a biological, developmental and therapeutic perspective. My research encompasses all stages of development, from young infants through to late adulthood, across a range of neurodiverse and mental health conditions, such as autism, anxiety, psychosis and substance dependence.

Some of my research highlights include:

-       Developing world-first oxytocin trials for young children with autism

-       Understanding the action of oxytocin through ligand development

-       Understanding how group therapy improves outcomes for individuals with autism and social anxiety disorder

We are based at the Brain & Mind Centre, University of Sydney (Camperdown)
