Research interests

I am primarily interested in the mechanisms that underlie neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease.

I am investigating how cellular processes change with age and how manipulation of these processes can alter tau and Abeta mediated phenotypes and pathologies.

Supervisor: Dr Amrit Mudher, Professor Chris Proud
PhD research: Using a Drosophila model to understand why age increases the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Funding: The Gerald Kerkut Trust, ARUK Southampton Network

Primary research group: Biological Sciences
