- Clinical Fellow
I am a clinical research fellow/ DPhil candidate, working under Professors Sarosh Irani and Arjune Sen. Within the Autoimmune Neurology group, my project involves ongoing clinical and immunological characterisation of patients with autoantibody-mediated encephalitis, with particular focus on those with LGI1 and CASPR2 autoantibodies. In parallel, I am working with the Oxford Epilepsy Research group, exploring the potential role of immunological dysfunction in a large cohort of patients with pharmacoresistant epilepsy.
