Interests

I am interested in the role of inflammation in mental health disorders.

My work focuses on understanding the possible links between inflammation and depression using observational and experimental medicine studies to examine the effect of immune-modulating drugs on mood and cognition in patients with major depressive disorder.

Previously, I worked in Dr Mitul Mehta’s lab in King’s evaluating real-time fMRI neurofeedback in anxiety. I also trained in using EEG, TMS and tDCS techniques.
