Research interests:

My research interest is focused on brain health and the prevention of type 2 diabetes. For my PhD work, I am investigating the possibility of enhancing neuroplasticity in insulin-sensitive brain regions in order to improve insulin sensitivity, weight management and cognitive functions.  For this purpose, I use non-invasive brain stimulation, measurements of peripheral metabolism and modern neuroimaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging.

Current projects:

  • Enhancing brain health to prevent type 2 diabetes using non-invasive brain stimulation.
