PhD research student in the discipline of medicine under the supervision of Professor Amanda Page, head of the Vagal Afferent Research Group (VARG).

Obese individuals have dampened satiety signalling via the gastric vagal afferents even after to return to a normal diet. The precise molecular mechanisms behind this phenomena are still unknown. My research aims to provide a deeper insight in to the reduced satiety signalling in diet induced obesity.
