Research interests

During my PhD I studied the relationship between sickness behaviour (behavioural changes induced by acute inflammation and infection) and social dominance behaviour in mice.

As a postdoctoral fellow, I have conducted researched on depressive-like behaviours induced by immune activation in a socially challenging environment. The role of the orexinergic system and social dominance on fever response was also investigated.

Previously, at the University of Southampton I have investigated the potential use of engineered antibodies in neuroinflammatory states on animal models. Currently I am investigating the role of a protease as a potential therapy for Alzheimer's Disease.
