Air pollution and Dementia: Exploring genetic, cardiovascular, and epigenetic moderators and mechanisms

I completed my BSc(Hons) in Biomedical Science at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, and my MSc in Global Health Science and Epidemiology at the University of Oxford. My Ph.D. in Precision Medicine at the University of Edinburgh investigates the relationship between air pollution and dementia and the understanding of the role of epigenetics, and cardiovascular disease in this relationship. I am supervised by Dr. Michelle Luciano, Dr. Tom Russ, and Asst. Prof. Dr. Ida Karlsson (Karolinska Institute) and at Helmholtz Center Munich I am supervised by Prof. Dr. Annette Peters.
