My research interests are into the genetic basis of psoriasis and eczema and new and emerging treatments for these conditions, for which I have received both national and international awards. I regularly publish on these topics, with over 250 peer reviewed publications, including the major general medical journals such as The Lancet.

Alongside this I sit on a national committee related to the use of “biologicals” (a new form of treatment for psoriasis) and I am involved in the production of national guidelines related to the treatment of psoriasis.

I have a strong track record on delivering high calibre lectures and have over the last 15 years been a plenary speaker and invited chair at the premier international and national dermatology meetings, both in the clinical and research fields (eg World Congress; American Academy of Dermatology; European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology; British Society of Investigative Dermatology). Additionally, I have been an invited speaker at the Royal College of Physicians and The Royal Society of Medicine as well as many others. These invitations demonstrate an international reputation in my research field and the feedback provided demonstrates the educational value of my lecture content.
