I am a DPhil student with the Autoimmune Neurology Group and the Oxford Epilepsy Research Group at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, supervised by Professors Arjune Sen, Sarosh Irani and Julian Knight. Our current work seeks to improve understanding of drug resistance in epilepsy, with the long-term aim of helping to improve treatment. In particular, we are looking for evidence of an autoimmune basis to drug resistance in some cases of epilepsy and for a potential genomic contribution to any such immune dysregulation.
