Research Summary
I am a neuroscientist who is interested in developing and utilising novel technologies to remotely and precisely manipulate brain cells such as astrocytes with magnets and magnetic materials. In particular, I leverage the high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems in the Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI) at University College London (UCL) to achieve imaging and actuation with a single device. My current research areas include astrocyte biology and brain cancer therapy.
