I am an immunologist by background. I became interested in immunology during my BSc, where I explored the role of nicotine acetylcholine receptors in B-cell activation. As a Masters student, I researched the topic of eye inflammation by studying the expression and function of anti-inflammatory glycoprotein Del-1 in the retina. During my PhD, I studied adhesion molecules and their importance in brain inflammation, using a mouse model of multiple sclerosis. I currently work as a postdoc at Queen Mary University of London, where I research atypical chemokine receptors and their role in cancer progression.
