I am a PhD student in the Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group, Department of Psychiatry. My research is investigating the potential of markers in the retina to provide an early indication of Alzheimer's disease in Down's syndrome. I am supervised by Prof. Tony Holland and Dr. Shahid Zaman in Cambridge and collaborate with Prof. Francesca Cordeiro at the Institute of Ophthalmology, UCL.
