I am currently a 2nd year PhD student investigating the role of MR-based water exchange imaging in determining blood-brain barrier dysfunction in patients with cerebrovascular disease. My supervisors are Prof. Hedley Emsley and Prof. Jo Knight. This is funded by a multi-centre EPSRC sponsored grant.
I completed my undergraduate training in Medicine at University of Manchester, followed by Foundation Training at Salford Royal. I was then appointed to an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship in Neurology and pursued an MSc in Clinical Research at Lancaster University. During this time, I undertook a pre-clinical research project focussing on the use of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) in an Alzheimer's Disease model supervised by Prof. Christian Holscher and then applied this to a clinical systematic review of GLP-1RAs in the management of acute stroke patients.
I am associate member of the Association of British Neurologists and serve on the European Academy of Neurology Scientific Panel for Stroke. I am regularly involved with the education of undergraduate and post graduate students.
