I am a biologist by training and I am a GABBA program alumni. I did a PhD in cardiac development at NYU under Prof. Debbie Yelon's supervision. I worked as a research associate on malaria parasite transmission for nearly 6 years at ICL, with Professor Bob Sinden and Dr. Jake Baum.
Before joining NHLI as a research support coordinator, I was a project manager at the Bone Marrow Dynamics Laboratory and coordinated the national Dementia and Parkinson Portfolio Development Groups under the National Director for Dementia Research (NIHR). I currently share the coordination of the Imperial Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Network.
I am passionate about equality, diversity and science communication so I work with Native Scientist to empower immigrant communities through science, while widening scientists skills and participation in outreach.
