Tell us a little about yourself:
I have a background in basic neurobiology, having completed my PhD at KCL in a rare inherited childhood neurodegenerative disorder. I modelled the disorder in fruit flies and learnt to dissect very small brains. My first post-doc was on human post-mortem tissue, where I learnt to section larger brains!
I am also one of the people leading the development and management of the Dementia Researcher website.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
I have visited 6 out of the 7 continents.
Why did you choose to work in dementia?
