The focus of my research is the relationship between brain activity patterns and their underlying genetic correlates. I am interested in how these two wildly different scales of biological organisation influence each other and result into neuropsychiatric clinical phenotypes. During my PhD I will be looking at different types of MRI brain connectivity with the end goal of leveraging these data to inform subsequent neuroscientific functional studies and, ultimately, say something about disease.
