    I am an independent Research Fellow in Cell and Developmental Biology. My research group is mainly studying the development of the nervous system and synaptic connections. Our model is C. elegans but we also collaborate with groups using comb jelly fish to understand the evolution of nervous systems in animals.

    My lab also collaborates internally with Alistair McGregor to understand eye size specification during development. Vision is an important sensory system and we use Drosophila for our genetic, morphological and behavioural analysis.
