Curriculum vitae

Scientific interests:

My scientific field of interest include biological mechanisms giving rise to individual differences in behavioural traits and how these differences may serve as predictors of vulnerability to neuropsychiatric disease. My current research focus on how serotonergic and neuroendocrine signalling contributes to the regulation of impulsive aggression.
