Identifying modifiable risk factors for brain health including dementia

Postdoctoral Researcher

My research primarily centers on uncovering modifiable risk factors that impact brain health, with a special focus on addressing dementia. I employ advanced causal inference methodologies to analyze extensive genetic datasets, with the overarching goal of identifying crucial elements influencing brain health and cognitive function.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree from University College London, Institute of Healthy Ageing. During my doctoral studies, I immersed myself in the captivating world of Drosophila to investigate the role of protein synthesis machinery in the aging process. A remarkable milestone was achieved by validating, for the first time, the significance of biogenesis of translation machinery in the human aging process through my research.

My passion lies in advancing our comprehension of dementia and brain health, contributing to a roadmap for a healthier and more vibrant aging population.
