Guest Researcher

I am interested in the connection between brain signaling, metabolism and pathology. In particular, how molecular and cellular changes in brain metabolism are related to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. I have recently joined the Wellendorph lab where I will investigate the molecular pathology of faulty GABA metabolism in the disease succinate semialdehyde dehydrogenase (SSADH) deficiency.


My main research interests include:

  • GABA/GHB metabolism and signaling
  • Brain metabolism and neurodegenerative diseases
  • Neurotransmitter recycling and metabolism
