My PhD was obtained at the National Institute for Medical Research London where I studied experience-dependent synaptic plasticity. During my postdoctoral research at University College London (in the laboratory of Prof Stuart Cull-Candy) I identified delta subunit-containing extrasynaptic GABA-A receptors as responsible for a novel form of tonic inhibition in the adult brain. As well as still studying the physiological and pathological role of extrasynaptic GABA-A receptors in the brain I am also examining the role of two-pore domain potassium channels in the control of neuronal excitability. My research at Imperial College London combines biophysical and imaging approaches with computational models to help advance current theories of brain function with an emphasis on sleep/wake cycles and also the impact of ageing on circuits of the brain.
