Research Summary

I conduct molecular and genetic epidemiology to investigate the causes of neurovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. These manifest as major health problems in older individuals, including cerebral small vessel disease (a precursor to stroke and vascular dementia), Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. My research has also focused on the discovery and repurposing of therapeutics that could prevent or treat these conditions. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I have served as a lead research fellow for one of the UK's national core studies investigating the causes and consequences of the pandemic, with a particular focus on the burden of long COVID in the population (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/covid-19-longitudinal-health-wellbeing/).

I currently hold funding as a principal investigator to examine the roles of common infections in cerebrovascular and Alzheimer's diseases.
