I work on CNS neuroimmunological diseases, particularly autoimmune encephalitides (eg. autoimmune encephalitis associated with NMDAR, LGI1 or related autoantibodies), with a broader research interest in all neuroimmunology, and the role of inflammation in neurodegenerative disease and in neuropsychiatric disease.
