Team Leader in Medicinal Chemistry, University of Sydney

I am Team Leader in Medicinal Chemistry at the Brain and Mind Centre, The University of Sydney. My research includes the design of new methods for imaging diseases of the brain, as well as the development of new drugs for the treatment of central nervous system disorders including pediatric epilepsy, neuropathic pain, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

I collaborate with the Clinical Toxicology and Environmental Biomonitoring Laboratory at University of California San Francisco to improve our understanding of the chemistry, pharmacology, and toxicology of "new psychoactive substances" such as synthetic cannabinoids, cathinones, and opioids.
