    I am an early career researcher in the Newbury lab. I use a range of bioinformatic and molecular biology techniques to study how genetics influences human learning through extreme traits. My main interests are:

    • how genetic variants underpin common neurodevelopmental conditions such as developmental language delay
    • studying the genetics that underlay 'super' face recognition
