Selene’s DPhil project is focused on investigating the biophysical properties of of a-synuclein fibrils from PD, PDD, DLB, and MSA patients' brains. She also investigates in vitro seeded fibrils from seeding amplification assay to assess whether they are representative of the disease-relevant fibrils. Selene is also interested in developing a less invasive seeding amplification assay using peripheral samples for diagnostic purposes.
Selene is currently a member of Brasenose college.
