My research interests focus on the role of extracellular vesicles (EVs) in cellular communication. My curiosity in this field was sparked during my BSc in Pharmacy which led me to pursue a DPhil in Physiology, where I have predominantly studied EV heterogeneity, in an attempt to understand the unique roles of different types of EVs released by cells.
