I am currently leading the Multi-’omics Atlas Project (MAP) at the Dementia Research Institute based at Imperial. This is a project to establish a comprehensive multi-'omic atlas characterising the pathology of human Alzheimer's Disease. Read more at map-ad.org.
I am also the Athena Swan lead for the Department of Brain Sciences.
My background is in synapse biology and in vivo two-photon imaging of synapse changes and other cellular processes.
