Associate Professor, Trinity College Dublin


I am an Associate Professor in the Smurfit Institute of Genetics in Trinity College Dublin and a member of the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience.  I am a graduate of the Genetics Department, Trinity College Dublin (B.A., Mod. 1991) and received my Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley (1997), where I studied neural development with Prof. Corey Goodman.  I did postdoctoral research with Prof. Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Prof. Bill Skarnes at the University of California, San Francisco and Stanford University, using molecular genetics to study neural development in the mouse.  Since 2002 I have been on the faculty at Trinity College Dublin.  I have been an EMBO Young Investigator and was elected to Fellowship of Trinity College in 2009.
