Postdoctoral Research Scientist
I am working as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi) under both Dr. Sridhar Vasudevan and Prof. Russell Foster.
My principal research interests include:
- Carrying out research on circadian rhythms, sleep, and neuropsychiatric disease.
- Delineating the molecular mechanisms that underlie these disruptions in animal and in vitro models.
- Identifying further pharmacological modulators and pathways for stabilisation of sleep and circadian rhythms as a therapeutic strategy.
Patient fibroblast circadian rhythms predict lithium sensitivity in bipolar disorder.
