Research Associate

My research interests lie in understanding the nanoscale triggers of neurodegenerative disorders using biophysical approaches and how these alterations at the synapses contribute towards the onset of such diseases. It was piqued during my PhD research and continues to grow within postdoctoral research. I am attempting to address the challenges associated with rapid extraction and nanoscale imaging of synapses from brain tissues.
