Third-year Neuroscience PhD student investigating the role of environmental air pollution on neurovascular dysfunction and the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Through an in vitro cell model, analysing the neuroinflammatory response to diesel exhaust particles initiated by astrocytes at the blood-brain barrier may elucidate the contribution of air quality as a dementia risk factor. 

Previous research has focused on the capacity for neuronal rewiring through gap junction modifications during critical developmental stages on the medicinal leech (Hirudo medicinalis).
