  • My main focus is on the role of microglial cells in chronic CNS inflammation
    such as progressive multiple sclerosis. I'm interested in functional
    microglial phenotypes and how these are affected by environment and
    treatments, and how we can utilize this to benefit patients. During my PhD, I
    studied the protective microglial function in clearing and degrading debris
    through autophagy in experimental MS models. My aim during my post-doc is to
    translate these findings to human disease.
