Research interests

My research is based in David Parkinson's group. One of the main aims of the group is to characterise the factors which drive the regenerative capacity of the peripheral nervous system. The focus of my project is investigating the role of the Hippo signalling pathway on gene expression in Schwann cells following injury.
