Interests

I am interested in the link between Down Syndrome and the high risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease and I am currently conducting an MPhil under the supervision of Prof. Anthony Holland and Dr. Shahid Zaman, as part of the "Defeat dementia in Down Syndrome" project.

My work focuses on the correlations between neuropsychological assessments, Amyloid-beta deposition, and mitochondrial dysfunction in vivo.
