Research interests

My research programmes are inspired by my clinical practice where I am drawn to particular areas of considerable need:

 

Central Nervous System Determined Behaviours in Inflammatory Disease -

Despite the recent therapeutic revolution among inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, patients remain disabled by symptoms such as pain and fatigue.  This multi-disciplinary translational portfolio aims to decipher these commanding symptoms by evaluating the roles of neurobiological and inflammatory factors. 

 

Epidemiology of Systemic Vasculitis - 

Inflammatory diseases such as systemic vasculitis are frequently overlooked due to their low prevalence.  Patients feel marginalised and their true disease burden remains to be fully quantified.  This programme of work seeks to apply descriptive, analytical and translational epidemiological methods to better quantify the burden and determinants of systemic vasculitis with view to informing and executing clinical trials.
