Profile Summary

I am a Lecturer in the School of Environment & Life Sciences. I teach on a number of modules including Study Skills, Biomedical Science, Biomedical Skills, Haematology & Transfusion Science, Human Physiology, Clinical Genetics and Immunology, Biomedical research Skills and Cell Pathology.

 

I am the Technology Enhanced Learning Champion for the School of Environment and Life Sciences. 

 

My research interests include;

 

1)  The role of impairred autophagy in ageing and neurodegenerative disorders such as

      Alzheimer's disease and Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration

2)  The mechanisms underlying the ‘spread’ of pathogenesis through anatomicall connected brain

      regions in Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease

3)  The role of glial cells in neurodegeneration

4)  Tau protein dysregulation and its relationship to impaired cognition in ageing and dementia 

5)  The use of technology to facilitate learning in higher education
