Academic Qualifications

2014-present: PhD Studentship. University of Southampton.
2010-2014: BSc (International) Neuroscience. University College Dublin, Ireland.

Research interests

My research is focused on elucidating the mechanism of tau propagation in connected neurons. I use advanced microfluidic devices that enable the development of orientated synaptic junctions between isolated murine hippocampal neurons to directly assess propagation of disease-associated tau across individual synapses.

Supervisor: Dr Katrin Deinhardt and Dr Jonathan West (co-supervisor)
PhD research: Orientated neuronal networks for investigating mechanisms of tau propagation
Funding: Alzheimer’s Research UK
