Research interests

My current research interests include the aetiology of asthma particularly in respects of dietary intakes and socioeconomic inequalities. I also work on an EU funded project (CHICOS) which aims to identify gaps in knowledge from current EU birth cohorts and to develop recommendations for future research and policy.
