Brief Biography

My major research interests lie in the interaction of human physiology (hormones, neurotransmitters, etc.) and behaviour. My aim is to understand how individual differences on the microscopic scale can lead to more global differences in outward behaviour.

Research Interests

I am currently investigating the effects of fetal thyroid hormone insufficiency on the development of colour vision.
