Girton College Bye-Fellow
Molecular Biology, Genetics, Cell Biology, Neurodegenerative diseases, Ageing
I am most curious about what happens to our brains when we age. I combine model organism, tissue culture and primary neurons studies to understand what are the key regulators of ageing.
Understanding what are the molecular pathways involved in ageing and diseases that it brings to us can be the first step in tackling neurodegenerative diseases.
I am a senior postdoc at MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. I started as a Career Development Fellow in 2015 following the completion of a PhD in Genetics at King’s College London (KCL), and an MSc in Biomedical & Molecular Sciences Research also at KCL
Since 2021, I am also a postdoc teaching associate (PDTA) at Girton College where I supervise and mentor first year Natural Sciences undergraduates for Biology of the Cell module. I also have been an occasional lecturer for UCL for almost two years.
Research and teaching are two strong passion in my life, outside of the lab and college walls, I am an avid runner and cook!
