Paula Rocktaeschel


DPhil Student

I am currently a DPhil student supervised by Zam Cader and Arjune Sen working on neurodevelopmental causes of epilepsy using a human stem cell model. My particular interest lies in the impact of astrocytes on epileptogenesis in the neurodevelopmental disease tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).
I completed my medical studies at University of Rostock, Germany in 2016 before starting my DPhil with the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience where I am fortunate to hold a scholarship from the Medical Research Council as well as the Clarendon Fund Oxford. Before that, I completed various internships in neurology and neurosurgery, amongst other at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London, and I hope to realise my dream of becoming a scientifically trained neurologist in the future.
