Dr Hisham Ziauddeen is a Senior Clinical Research Associate working with Prof. Paul Fletcher. He works on brain reward systems to study the role of environmental influences and opioid and dopaminergic systems in controlling food reward processing and eating behaviour.

As a side interest, he has spent some time looking at the matter of food addiction both in the scientific literature and in stand-up comedy (sets on YouTube).


Dr Ziauddeen is married and has a young child. He will give a brief talk about his experience of being an academic dad and how he manages to balance his academic life and family life.


This will be followed by a Q&A session for you to raise any questions, and a chance to meet other postdocs and share your own experiences.
