I studied Biomedical sciences (BSc Hons) at University College London (UCL) and then carried on to do a Masters degree (MSc) in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford. Following the completion of the Neuroscience MSc, I continued with my PhD studies at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Ed Mann. My research in the Mann lab focused on understanding the role of GABAergic interneurons in cortical network oscillations at gamma (γ)-frequency (30-100 Hz). I am currently conducting my postdoctoral research at the Maguire lab where I am applying and expanding on the skills I have learned during my PhD to study the role of tonic GABAergic inhibition in brain oscillations. Impairments in these oscillations have been observed in a number of psychiatric and cognitive disorders. Moreover, specific oscillations are linked to distinct brain states and cognitive abilities. Thus, exploring the mechanisms that enable rhythmic oscillations to emerge may help us understand the underlying signalling during certain brain states and provide insights into which neuronal computations are disrupted in cognitive disorders.
