Nicolas Crossley

Visiting Professor of Psychiatry


I am an academic psychiatrist interested in understanding brain function in health and disease using neuroimaging, particularly in psychotic disorders. Since 2016 I have been based in Chile, where I have actively built links with Latin American researchers, engaging in several ongoing collaborations such as the ANDES network that I created (Latin American Network for the study of early psychosis).

My current research involves integrating social and environmental factors into the study of imaging biomarkers in psychosis. I focus on the impact on the brain and clinical trajectories of psychosis of the social determinants of health. These include poverty, violence and gender inequality, which are particularly relevant for the global south.
