I am a neurology registrar and PhD candidate on the Leonard Wolfson Programme for Neurodegeneration. My project uses bioinformatic and machine learning techniques to study the genetics of neurodegenerative diseases. My research aims to apply functional genomic annotation and RNA-sequencing data to improve understanding of neurogenetic disorders. Alongside the PhD, I am also a clinical research fellow in the Queen Square Neurogenetics clinic, developing specialist clinical experience in this field. I am supervised by Professors Mina Ryten and Henry Houlden. 

My research interests started during my intercalated undergraduate degree in Physiology and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge, where I studied the electrophysiology of skeletal muscle using microelectrodes. I then completed clinical training at the University of Oxford. Following this, I was an academic medicine foundation doctor at Imperial College London. Before embarking on the PhD, I was a specialist registrar at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and NIHR Neurology academic clinical fellow at King's College London.
