Department of Zoology



Following undergraduate studies in Molecular Biology at UCL, I attended the University of Edinburgh to study Integrative Neuroscience for a Masters (MSc) degree. I joined the EPSRC Sensor Technology and Applications Centre for Doctoral Training for my Masters (MRes) and PhD degrees at the University of Cambridge, working with the Molecular Neuroscience Group. Currently I am working as an MRC Career Development Fellow at the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, and a visitor to the Department of Zoology in the group of Dr. Marta Zlatic.


On joining the Zlatic lab I will be researching long-term memory formation using the model of Drosophila larvae. My key interests are understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in synaptic plasticity and ultimately how these may be altered in different neurological and psychiatric disorders.
