Amy is an MRC funded PhD student in the Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders at King’s College London.
Amy’s current research is part of the Biology of Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (BIOJUME) Study (https://childhoodepilepsy.org/research-studies/biojume/) which collects clinical, genetic and EEG data from patients with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME) across the world. Her project aims to identify EEG and neuropsychological endophenotypes of JME and investigate their use in genome-wide association analysis.
Amy is also a Graduate Teaching Assistant for BSc Psychology and BSc Psychology and Neuroscience courses at King’s College London.

The Richardson Lab comprises a team of researchers from several different disciplines, including neurology, psychology, engineering and physics. We study the brain as an entire functioning system, rather than studying small components of the brain.
