Research summary

I have developed an interest in the early life origins of respiratory disease. During my PhD I explored epidemiological associations between maternal nutrition and respiratory outcomes in childhood, particularly wheeze. I am particularly interested in maternal diet and body composition and the effects of these upon fetal and early infant growth and development. 

Teaching summary

I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and have experience in the design and delivery of undergraduate medical education. I have a particular interest in education focussed upon medical ethics and law as well as respiratory physiology.
