Personal profile

Research Interests

My main research interests include the development of tissue engineering strategies to model stem cell behaviour in the development of neuronal networks and also during neurodegeneration.  I am currently engaged in developing stem cell derived models of the CNS in an attempt to study complex cellular interactions that occur in development and disease.
