About

My research focuses on mapping genes for complex neuropsychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and Alzheimer disease. We have conducted whole genome scans on these subjects and identified genetic variants associated to some of these disorders which we are now further characterizing at a functional level. Aditionally, we work with advocacy groups to push the mental health and human rights agenda, both locally and globally.
