About me

  • I am a postdoctoral researcher with John Andersson and Fang Fang in the
    Institute of Environmental Medicine.
    My work focuses on the role/specificity of CD4 CTLs in ALS
    A highly-motivated and curious researcher who is fascinated by the workings
    of the immune system. Hoping to work on the interaction between the
    psychology/mental health and immunity.
    Awarded fellwoship through the 2022 ECTRIMS postdoctoral fellowship program
    2019: PhD in Molecular Medicine, specialized in molecular immunology and
    virology - The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics, Cyprus
    * Thesis: The antiviral role of natural killer cells in multiple sclerosis,
    as seen from the perspective of an Epstein-Barr virus infection
    2015: MSc, Masters in molecular medicine - The Cyprus Institute of Neurology
    and Genetics, Cyprus
    * Thesis: Characterization of natural killer cells in multiple sclerosis
    2014: MBSc, Masters in biomedical Sciences - University of Balamand, Lebanon
    * Thesis: The effect of aldosterone on glucose absorption in the jejunum of
    adult colectomized rats.


  • My current pursuit is to identify possible autoantigens that may induce
    clonally expanded CD4+ cytotoxic T cells in established patients of
    amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. I will also work on uncovering the change in
    CD4 CTL activity across time in human ALS patients.
