Equipment & Techniques
My research focusses on the formation and properties of specialised subcellular compartments. During my PhD, I investigated the effects of the ALS/FTD-associated RNA-binding protein FUS on axonal branching and organisation. My current postdoctoral research centres on macromolecular crowding and local heterogeneity in the cytosol.
