Biography

I graduated with first class honours in Pharmacology from the University of Glasgow in 1990 and was awarded a PhD from University of Glasgow in 1994 for a project entitled "Experimental seizure models and new antiepileptic drugs". I subsequently undertook an extended period of post-doctoral research at the Epilepsy Unit, Western Infirmary, Glasgow, studying the basic and clinical neuropharmacology of antiepileptic agents. I moved to a permanent academic post at the University of Liverpool in 2007 where I continued my research in the field of epilepsy but also became increasingly involved in the teaching of pharmacology and neuroscience at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I returned ‘home’ to the University of Glasgow in October 2018, where I currently hold the position of Lecturer in Pharmacology in the School of Life Sciences.

Research interests

My principal research interests lie in the field of epilepsy and antiepileptic drugs. Much of my early research work focused on the mechanisms of action of antiepileptic drugs and their efficacy in experimental seizure models. Later, I became increasingly involved in clinical studies of antiepileptic drugs and in exploring the mechanisms behind the phenomenon of drug resistance, which affects >30% of people with epilepsy. This led me into research on drug transporters at the blood-brain barrier and latterly into the study of genomics and its contribution to both the development of epilepsy and to inter-individual differences in the response to antiepileptic drug therapy. Recently, I have additionally pursued interests in the role of inflammation and oxidative stress in epilepsy and in the use of non-mammalian species for novel antiepileptic drug discovery.
