Research interests

I began life working on locusts, crickets, cockroaches... all sort of insects fascinate me. Then I spent 15 years studying how snails use chemicals called amines to control what they eat. Over the last 10 years, I have focussed on the role of amines in fruit flies, developing new techniques to find out how they work, and how the manipulation of dopamine and Parkinson's related genes affects them. Most recently, my lab has been testing novel drugs related to Parkinson's, to see how they can prevent or slow the progression of the degeneration of the CNS. In my spare time I love birdwatching. I take services in the Church of England sometimes.
