My research area is chronic non-commutable disease. I joined the Oxford department of primary care 2012 coming from a background in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic research.

I am the renal programme lead and am co-ordinating the Oxford Renal Cohort study (OxRen) which seeks to establish and curate a longitudinal population cohort in the major disease area of Chronic Kidney Disease under the remit of the Head of Department, Professor Richard Hobbs. OxRen seeks to identify the range and relative weighting of population risk factors, across demographic groupings; characterise the determinants of disease progression, and determine the potential for interventions to delay or prevent the onset of disease.

I'm secretary of SAPC with an interest in increasing the advocacy for academic primary care and producing tangible take-homes for our members. What that means is providing resources, training, opportunities for our members that are useful to our members to enhance their careers and increase their opportunities within academic primary care.

I'm also the website lead and 'chief geek' and am always looking for people to help so if you're interested please contact me.
