Profile Image
Professional Teaching Fellow

Research | Current

Prior to my current Teaching Fellow role, my  postdoctoral research focused on Alzheimers and Huntingtons disease, using genetics, simple cell culture models, C. elegans, transgenic sheep and human patient tissue and DNA to advance our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms behind these diseases. A major research focus was the molecular characterization of the transgenic sheep model of HD, using candidate gene and discovery methodologies, including RNAseq and metabolomics, playing a lead role in project management and logistics for the transgenic sheep project, and in enabling others in using the model for their research and preclinical trials.
