Research interests

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Diagnostics Evidence Cooperative (DEC) Oxford, focuses on the identification of unfilled niches and barriers to the implementation of in vitro diagnostic tools in primary care. I am the researcher within the Oxford DEC who is responsible for liaising with members of the in vitro diagnostics industry and for facilitating interactions with the DEC advisory panel. I have a specific interest in IVDs which could be deployed in resource-limited settings.

My background is in cell physiology, membrane transport processes and signaling. I have a particular interest in the control of ventilation and in particular how humans respond to changes in the partial pressure of inspired oxygen. I have an associated interest in the physiology and medicine of life in remote regions and at high altitude.
