I am interested in signaling between immune cells and the vasculature. I did my BSc and MRes at the Universities of Glasgow and Melbourne and then completed my PhD with David Attwell at University College, London. My PhD focused on how contractile cells on capillaries, called pericytes, regulate brain energy supply (in the form of oxygen and glucose in the blood) in health, stroke, and Alzheimer's Disease. In the Stevens Lab, I am exploring immune-vascular interactions in the brain and its bordering tissues including the meninges and the skull. I am fascinated by how these interactions may control cerebral waste clearance, immunosurveillance, and blood flow in health and diseases. I am excited to collaborate with members of the Stevens Lab and beyond. I am grateful to the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) for supporting my work!
