Anna Kuppuswamy is a motor neurophysiologist investigating the neurophysiology of affect. Her particular interests are in understanding the neurophysiological basis of pathological fatigue. She completed her PhD at Imperial College London, and after a brief stint at National Institutes of Health in the US, she started her lab in 2016 at University College London. She is a Royal Society and Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale Fellow based at the Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London.
To investigate fatigue in disease, her lab combines brain stimulation and brain imaging with behavioral and modelling techniques. Aside from her scientific work, she is passionate about public engagement activities to raise awareness about fatigue, and contributing to policy surrounding fatigue, healthcare and employment.
