Graduate Admissions

I joined the Department of Psychiatry in 2013, first as an MPhil student, and later, as a PhD student. I work on the genetics of autism and related traits with the aim of developing genetically informed stratification of the autism spectrum. What I really value about the research here is the mix of basic and clinical sciences. At the Autism Research Centre and other labs in the department, there's research on wide-ranging ideas from the development of brain networks to developing apps to help autistic kids better communicate and understand social cues. However, whilst different labs are working on different questions, there is a sense of community and collaboration. In particular, the annual graduate student symposium and the postdoc day brings people from all the different labs together to brainstorm and swap ideas. 

 

Outside of the Department, I've also really enjoyed college life in Cambridge. It's great to grab dinner or a drink after a long day's work with people outside my field. There is so much happening in Cambridge:  Here, you can row with Olympians, watch thespians on stage at the ADC, share a table with a Nobel laureate at the local cafe, or simply, let your hair down at one of the many parties in the colleges. There's something for everyone! There really is no better place to conduct cutting-edge research.
