I obtained a BSc in Biochemistry with specialisation in Medicinal Chemistry from Concordia University, Montreal, in 1984. After working for several years as a research assistant in the field of Biotechnology, I entered graduate studies in Molecular Biology and was awarded a PhD degree from Ottawa University in 1992. My PhD thesis was on the molecular evolution of genetic regulatory mechanisms.
I then completed a five year post-doctoral training in the field of Functional Genomics at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (now known as Cancer Research UK), where I became a Marie Curie Fellow. In 1997, I joined the National Institute for Medical Research as a senior post-doctoral fellow in Molecular Neuroendocrinology.
In 2000, I was appointed in a teaching and research position as a Lecturer in Neurosurgery at the School of Medicine and Dentistry in Queen Mary University of London. I taught medical courses at different levels, undergraduate and graduate, and my research was predominantly on mechanisms of inflammation and repair in the nervous system.
I joined Middlesex University as a Senior Lecturer in 2014. I am involved in teaching and research in Biomedicine, and particular in the development of Neuroscience programmes.

Obtained over £1M research funding from grants awarded as Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-Investigator (Co-I):
My recent research has been towards the elucidation of key molecular factors of neuronal repair in order to be applied in therapeutic strategies for patients with damaged neuronal function in neurodegenerative diseases and trauma.
