Research

Research Interests

My research interest continues to focus on the causation of neurological disorders in children in the broad sense and

recently has focused on three areas:

1) Risk factors in neonatal hypoxic ischaemic  encephalopathy

2) The molecular genetics of severe undiagnosed early onset epileptic disorders

3) Movement disorders : novel genotype-phenotype associations including complex motor disorders.

This research involves collaboration with researchers at UCD (SMMS) Mater and Rotunda Hospitals and internationally.
