I graduated in Medicine from Aberdeen University in 1989. After basic General Medicine and Psychiatry training, I obtained my PhD from the University of Birmingham in 1998. In 1999 I commenced a Wellcome Trust Fellowship in Psychiatric Genetics and subsequently moved to the University of Cambridge in 2003 as a University Lecturer. I was appointed as a Reader at the University of St Andrews in 2007 and promoted to Professor in 2009. I provide some clinical input into the General Adult Psychiatry service in Fife.

I am Deputy Head (Internal Affairs) of the Medical School and Director of Admissions.

My research programme investigates the biological underpinnings of psychiatric disorders.
