UK Health Security Agency

I am a Cellular and Molecular Pharmacologist by training [understanding the mechanism(s) involved in the onset, progression, and possible management strategies of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease] with industrial experience in primary and mammalian cell culture as well as iPSCs in-vitro models of the kidneys, airway, neuronal and microglia cells; downstream assays, viral (adeno-associated virus, lentivirus) and lipid nanoparticle (LNPs) gene delivery strategies.

I am a member of the Royal Society of Biology and currently holds a position as a Higher Research Scientist within the Experimental Toxicology Group at the UK Health Security Agency.

My research will involve assay development/validation/optimization and providing mechanistic insights into chemical, particulate and allergen hazard associated asthma exacerbation and allergic airway disease.
