Research Interests

My area of research is to understand the role of cell signalling enzymes in neuronal cell death in situations such as stroke and Alzheimer’s Disease. I am particularly interested in understanding the role of protein kinases in transmitting signals from cell surface to nuclei and triggering cell death.
