My area of research is complex disease genetics. This applies to conditions where multiple genes interplay with environmental triggers.

I use both genetic and functional approaches to further the understanding of:

 (i) The commonest inflammatory arthritis to affect children under 16 years – Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

(ii) Changes that arise with weight variation    a.  Obesity

                                                                         b.  Bariatric surgery

                                                                         c. Diabetes (T2DM, T1D, GDM)

(iii) Inflammatory pathologies, especially where variation in steroid sensitivity is a factor (eg SLE).
