Richard's post-doctoral work will be a collaboration between the Autism Research Centre and the Geschwind lab at UCLA to work on integrated neuroimaging and transcriptomics in order to gain better understanding of genetic underpinnings of atypical neurodevelopment. Specifically, he will be looking to integrate gene expression data with large brain imaging datasets and examine if dynamic brain network alterations in autism can be predicted from genetic information.

Alongside this he will continue to work on analysing the imaging data he collected for the oxytocin inhalation project.
