I am interested in how steroid hormone production changes dynamically over an individual's lifespan and the physiological processes that it influences. Some of my research are molecular and cellular based, such as investigations of tissue-specific steroid biosynthesis. Other areas of research utilise physiological and behavioural approaches to investigate the role of steroids during critical periods of development to program health later in life.
