Current Research

I am a Research Fellow as part of a multidisciplinary, multicentre team studying the biology of child growth and development in three low- and middle-income countries (India, Indonesia and Senegal). In particular, I work with Professor Paul Haggarty on Epigenetics, and Dr Alan Walker on the Microbiome. The project, Action against Stunting, is a UK Research and Innovation Global Challenges Research Fund Hub. 

Past Research

My PhD research focused on antidepressant use during pregnancy, and the effects on the developing offspring. Using a rat model of maternal adversity, I examined gene expression and epigenetic regulation in the brain and placenta, and the role of the maternal microbiome.
