Research Interests

Supervisor: Dr Murray Clarke

I am a PhD student in my 2nd year of the British Heart Foundation 4 year Cardiovascular Medicine programme. The Clarke lab investigates how necrosis drives sterile inflammation, and specifically how necrotic cell death and inflammation affects the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic plaques. In particular, I am interested in determining the role of endothelial cell derived IL-1α in atherosclerosis and graft rejection. Additionally, I hope to examine the links between atherosclerosis and atherothrombosis.
