I joined Imperial College as a postdoctoral Research Associate to investigate the molecular mechanisms that underpin an individual’s genetic risk in Alzheimer’s disease by applying a multi-omics approach. 

My PhD was completed at the University of Auckland which used metabolomics to understand the postprandial responses of individuals at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease. 

I am also interested in consultancy for healthcare, nutrition and biotech.
