Biography

Publications: You can find my publications via Google Scholar

Background: I received a BSc in Psychology (1st class Hons) from the University of Leeds in 2003, and continued to complete an MRC-funded MSc (distinction, 2004) and PhD in Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry in 2008 at the Institute of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, King’s College London. In 2012 I moved to the University of Adelaide, and in 2016 to Flinders University as a Matthew Flinders Fellow. Here I head the Behavioural Genetic and Environmental Mechanisms (Behavioural GEMs) Lab. For current projects please see the Research and Supervision page in the tabs above.

Current Research:
My research focuses on incorporating environmental factors, such as life-stress, with genetic analyses at candidate loci in depression and psychosis (bipolar disorder and schizophrenia) and in longitudinal population cohorts. I am particularly passionate about trying to understand how it is the environment might interact with our genetics, and with ourselves, at the biological level. Epigenetics provides a possible avenue by which the environment can interact with our genome, and my recent research investigates epigenetic variation in behaviour and psychiatry in conjunction with gene-environment interactions. This includes investigating DNA methylation and small RNAs associated with disease risk/protective factors as well as the disease, and their functional impact on gene-expression, protein levels, and/or neuroimaging.

Behavioural Genetic and Environmental Mechanisms (Behavioural GEMs) Lab:

Understanding genetic and environmental risk / protective mechanisms in behaviour, Including:

  1. Role of childhood maltreatment, life stress, and exercise in behaviour: gene-environment interaction, and epigenetic regulation (DNA methylation and small RNAs) that impacts on risk/protection of disorder.
  2. Behavioural genetics, in particular depression and bipolar disorder (GWAS and sequencing).
  3. Understanding (epi)genetic and environmental impact within context of behavior, in particular immunity / inflammation (i.e. immunogenetics and proteomics), and comorbid physical illness.

Our research focuses on incorporating environmental factors (i.e. childhood maltreatment), with genetic and epigenetic analyses in depression and psychosis (bipolar disorder and schizophrenia), and in longitudinal population cohorts. We aim to understand how environment interacts with our genes at the biological level. Epigenetics provides a possible avenue by which the environment can interact with our genome. We investigate DNA methylation and small RNAs associated with disease risk/protective factors as well as the disease, and their functional impact on gene-expression, protein levels, and/or neuroimaging.

Current Projects:
Ongoing:
**NHMRC Defining the role of inflammation in depression during ageing (CIB) - gene expression and GWAS
**NHMRC Epigenetic mechanisms of brain dysfunction in psychotic and mood disorders (CIC) - DNA methylation.
**LOOK project - genetic and epigenetic factors, stress and depressive symptoms; a longitudinally assessed sample of children from the ages of 7 up to 16.
**Yoga and impact on biological systems - DNA methylation and gene expression changes following yoga practise in a chronically stressed cohort of women

Concluding:
**Epigenetics in depression - monozygotic twins discordant for major depressive disorders.
**Scars of Stress - serotonin transporter gene methylation in association with childhood maltreatment in a clinical case-control depression sample.
**Gene-environment interactions and depression - immuno-genetic interactions with childhood maltreatment in the prediction of depressive disorders.
