Molecular organisation of inhibitory synapses in genetic epilepsies
Alterations in molecular structure of synapses are common in many neurological and disorders. Using super-resolution microscopy we will follow single proteins at synapses, in real time with resolution of 20 nm, to examine how molecular architecture of synapses changes in genetic epilepsies.

Loss, gain and altered function of GABA-A receptors in genetic epilepsies – Effects of Shisa7 modulation
Neuroreceptors are small pores, often found at synapses, that enable neuronal communication in the brain. This project will combine patch-clamp electrophysiology and molecular modelling to better understand how genetic mutations found in neuroreceptors affect their function and cause diseases.

How Gig Economy Workers Cope With Job Ambiguity
Gig economy workers face challenges because their work is mediated via algorithms. They lack supervisors to guide them and so are left on their own when solving problems. We aim to study how workers deal with and overcome such ambiguity in their jobs, and offer insights into this growing issue.
