Clinician Scientist MRC Research Fellow, King's College London

I am MRC Clinician Scientist Fellow in the Department of Social Genetics and Developmental Psychiatry at the IoPPN, KCL and an Honorary Consultant Adult Psychiatry, at EI Lambeth Community team, South London and Maudsley NHS foundation Trust. In 2012, I obtained my PhD on the topic of gene x cannabis use interaction influencing the risk of psychotic disorders. I have written some of the most cited papers in the field of cannabis use and Mental health and together with my research team, I was the first to report that the use of high potency cannabis carries the highest risk for Psychotic Disorders.
