Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on the genetic underpinnings of common complex neuropsychiatric disorders with an emphasis on evolutionary/adaptive effects of gene variants. Given the incredible complexity underlying human neurobehavioral traits, I strongly believe in the necessity of applying a multidisciplinary approach that may involve genetics, neuropsychiatry, ecology, immunology and sociology. Currently I’m working on X-chromosome wide association studies, aiming to get a better understanding of sex-specific differences in the susceptibility to neuropsychiatric conditions.
