My particular interests lie in molecular neuroscience and diseases of the peripheral nervous system.
I completed my PhD in Neuroscience at University College London, under the supervision of Prof. Linda Greensmith, Prof. Mary M. Reilly and Dr. Bernadett Kalmar. My thesis explored potential pathomechanisms underlying Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy type I. Subsequently, I undertook post doctoral training in the laboratory of Prof. M. Laura Feltri, at the University of Buffalo, State University of New York, where my research centred on myelin and axo-glia communication in development and disease.
Currently, I am a post doctoral research scientist in Prof. Michael Coleman's laboratory at the University of Cambridge, where I am exploring programmed axonal degeneration and its relevance to human disease. More specifically, I am investigating the non-coding regions of the genes NMNAT2 and SARM1, and biomarkers of programmed axonal degeneration.
