I am a BBSRC sponsored Postdoctoral Research Assistant with a background in neuroendocrine regulation of food intake in teleosts.

Currently, my research focuses on investigating and determining the physiological/behavioural roles of neuropeptides in the common European starfish, Asterias rubens, from a comparative and evolutionary point of view. In this sense, A. rubens provides a missing link between the well-characterized neuropeptide systems of vertebrates and protostomian invertebrates.
