Biography

I completed my BSc in Pharmacology at the University of Southampton prior to moving to Imperial for MRes studies in Neuroscience. I stayed at Imperial College to complete my PhD under the supervision of Prof David Dexter, looking at the neuroprotective potential of histone deacetylase inhibitors in Parkinson's disease, using imaging to quantify disease progression in the rodent brain. I then moved to UCL's Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging to lead a collaborative project with Eli Lilly looking to develop imaging strategies to assess pathology in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. I am currently the recipient of Alzheimer's Research UK and Parkinson's UK reserarch fellowships aiming to understand the involvement of the glymphatic system in neurodegenerative disease.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My research is focused on using imaging techniques such as MRI alongside molecular and cellular approaches to understand the pathological processes involved in neurodegeneration, in particular, in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease animal models. In more recent work I have focussed on investigating the role of the glymphatic system in neurodegenerative disease, applying novel imaging strategies to quantify glymphatic function in disease models.
