Research interests

My PhD is funded by the GW4 BioMed MRC DTP and I am supervised by Professor James Uney and Dr. Liang-Fong Wong at the University of Bristol, and Professor Nick Allen at Cardiff University. I am currently based within Professor Uney’s research group, within Translational Health Sciences.

My current research is in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of cell death in neurodegenerative diseases. I am particularly interested in Parkinson’s disease and polyglutamine disorders such as Huntington’s disease and the Spinocerebellar Ataxias. My PhD research has involved characterising mechanisms to improve mitochondrial health in neurodegenerative disease. I am also currently working on characterisation of novel roles of nucleic-acid binding proteins in the cell stress response in neurodegeneration.
