Research summary

Interested in the impact that our lifestyle has on brain structure. I use large-sample, multimodal, longitudinal datasets to address the determinants of ‘healthy’ ageing.

Current research interests

Currently, I am investigating how low level, chronic inflammation influences cognition and brain structure. Interested in epigenetics, brain-imaging and inflammation.
