  • Honorary Research Assistant

  • Faculty of Brain Sciences

I completed my preclinical and clinical medical training at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford respectively; this included a research year working as part of the Longo Lab (headed by Professor Frank Longo) at the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, Stanford University. I completed my PhD at the Stroke Research Centre, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, under the supervision of Professors David Werring and Rolf Jäger. My thesis focussed on the role of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) and other cerebral small vessel diseases in cognitive impairment, neurodegeneration and stroke. 

Research Summary

I hold a Clinical Lectureship funded by Alzheimer’s Research UK, the Stroke Association and the NIHR, and am currently based at the MRC Prion Unit at UCL, where I work as part of the Alzheimer’s Disease Group led by Professor John Collinge. My lectureship project focuses on iatrogenic CAA, a newly described form of early-onset CAA thought to occur as a consequence of protein (amyloid-beta) transmission. My aim is to establish whether prion biology can explain how and why vascular amyloid deposition occurs, and why this sometimes results in brain haemorrhage.
