Having graduated from University College Dublin with a BSc in Physiology in 1999, I then gained my PhD from University College Dublin (2003), for work utilising microdialysis to characterise pathways involved in cognitive function. I worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Sheffield (2003–2005), and Queens University Belfast (2005–2008) on projects investigating neurochemical and pathological deficits in animal models of schizophrenia. I was appointed as a Lecturer in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Bradford in 2008, moving to the University of Manchester in 2013 and was appointed as Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology in the Division of Pharmacy & Optometry in 2022.
