Interests

I am a molecular neuroscientist interested in elucidating molecular and cellular mechanisms behind disorders of brains and translating this understanding to novel therapies. My current research focuses on finding drugs that are beneficial to the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Hungtington's diseases.
