Postdoctoctoral Research Scientist
I am a research scientist in the Translational Neuroscience and Dementia Research Group, working primarily on the underlying mechanisms of amyloid beta pathology in Alzheimer’s disease. For these studies, we are generating neuronal and non-neuronal rodent and human cell models of how amyloid beta aggregation results in synaptic loss, increased tau expression and subsequent neurodegeneration. Within our model we aim to establish the phenotypes of these models ranging from gene, and protein expression and modification to neuronal function.
Prior to joining this team, I completed a PhD in neonatal hypoxia-ischemic cerebral injury at the Institute for Women’s Health, University College London.
