Interests

My main research focuses on developing potential therapeutic targets for Alzheimer's disease using cell and fly models, in combination with human genetic, biochemical, behavioural and brain imaging data.

I am also involved in a collaborative project, where I use in silico molecular modelling to investigate the toxic effect of antipsychotic on mitochondria.
