  • I am a clinical anatomist/neuroanatomist and medical scientist.  I completed my PhD at the University of Adelaide.  I am also a Visiting Research Fellow in the School of Medicine at the University of Adelaide and a Research Associate in the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine at the University of Zurich. My research interests include mental disorders, biological variations, mind body medicine, enhancement technologies, philosophy of medicine and bioethics.

    In 2017 our article was included in winning the Frontiers Spotlight Award on the theme” "Augmentation of brain function: facts, fiction and controversy".  I am currently involved in engineering a novel nanobot based neuroprosthetic device called ELI – (Endomyrrchorizae like interface), which was discussed in our recently published article.  We are hoping that ELI will be used as a future therapy for treating neurodegenerative disorders.
