Personal profile

Research interests

My main area of interest is the application of brain imaging to the study of the early stages of psychosis, and the relationship between brain, other biological risk factors for psychosis, and the biological effects of antipsychotics. I am using different imaging techniques such as structural and functional imaging, and diffusion tensor imaging to explore the role of the neurological abnormalities in schizophrenia, and the presence of brain changes and their progression in psychosis. I am also currently using multimodal imaging longitudinally to establish neuroimaging biomarkers that can be used as predictors of treatment response to antipsychotic drugs in patients at the first episode of a psychosis.
