I completed my PhD with Nigel Holder at KCL working on nerve regeneration in axolotls. At that time, I was very impressed with the publications on zebrafish from the University of Oregon and for my post-doc I moved to Steve Easter's lab in Michigan to work on zebrafish brain development. After this, I returned to London to work alongside Nigel Holder, Roger Patient and others in the Developmental Biology Research Centre at Kings College. In 1998, Nigel and I moved to the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology at UCL. Zebrafish research has continued to expand at UCL since then. We are studying brain and eye development in fish - morphogenesis, stem cells, fate specification, circuit formation and behaviour – lots of different topics. You can read about the various projects ongoing in the lab on the research pages of our website and download most of our publications from the publications page.

Among our collaborators outside of UCL are the groups of Corinne Houart, Jon Clarke, Alex Schier, Michael Brand, Derek Stemple, Will Talbot, Hitoshi Okamoto, Tom Becker, Vladimir Korzh, Brian Link, Nicky Ragge, Hiro Teraoka, Miguel Concha and others – we like to collaborate!
