Clinical Fellow



I am a neurology registrar training in East London and a researcher at the Wolfson Institute. I am currently doing a PhD supported by the MRC and the MS Society. I am interested in how genetic and environmental factors contribute to the pathogenesis of Multiple Sclerosis. I am also interested more generally in complex trait genetics. My PhD project – the ADAMS study – is asking whether the genetic architecture of Multiple Sclerosis differs among different ancestral groups.


Research Interests:

Multiple Sclerosis

Complex trait genetics

Cross-ancestral genetics
