About Me

I am a Wellcome Trust Clinical Fellow and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist based at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge (UK) and at Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT, UK). I also collaborate with other institutions, such as the National Treatment Service for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) (England and Wales, UK), the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Chicago (USA), and the BrainPark at Monash University (Australia).

My research and clinical work focuses on the neurobiology and treatment of impulsive, compulsive, and behaviourally addictive problems. I have particular interests in conditions such as adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), gambling disorder, trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder), and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I also study how impulsive and compulsive problems exist along a continuum (or dimension) in the general population. My over-arching aim is to develop and implement new treatments (including early interventions) for impulsive, compulsive, and behaviourally addictive problems.
