I recently completed my PhD in neuroscience at the University of Melbourne where I investigated: 1. the role of the Sez6 family of proteins in the regulation of dendritic branching, spine formation, and synaptic function and; 2. how the Sez6 family of proteins influence behaviour. Subsequently, as a postdoctoral scientist in the Enteric Neuroscience Laboratory, I have focused on the biology of enteric glial cells including their potential to contribute to disease pathology. My current work utilises a mouse model of glioma to investigate the intrinsic and environmental factors that may protect enteric glia from developing glioma.
