Early Career Researcher in the discipline of medicine under the supervision of Professor Amanda Page, head of the Vagal Afferent Research Group (VARG).

Gastrointestinal vagal afferents are involved in appetite regulation and gastrointestinal function.

My research aims to determine the activity of vagal afferents in health and in certain states such as pregnancy and obesity. This may provide insight into the complex regulation of vagal afferents, and shape future research.
