Curriculum Vitae

I am interested in neuroscience. My research combines neuroscience and pharmacology to explore the action of contemporary drugs on cognitive function in animal, healthy people and patients. At present, I am working in the Quennsland Brain Institute, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.
