I have graduated from Imperial College as a Biologist, and also spent a year in Lyon, France working on the pathogenesis of viruses like Ebola and Marburg. In 2014, I completed a Masters degree in Molecular Biology and the Pathology of Viruses at Imperial College, where I developed a deep interest to understand the molecular bases of disorders, such as of the common flu caused by influenza virus. 

Research Summary

I am a member of the research team of the Wellcome Trust Strategic Award for Synaptopathies. Our aim is to identify the genetic basis of rare paroxysmal disorders. I am also studying towards a PhD under the supervision of Prof Henry Houlden and Dr Conceicao Bettencourt. The predominant focus of my research is studying the genetic and functional basis of rare neuropathies, movement and other episodic neurological disorders, seen in patients from around the world. Next-generation sequencing technology like exome and genome sequencing, together with functional studies and animal work are all important parts of my project.
