My main areas of expertise are in the life course and genetic epidemiology of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and diabetes. I have a medical background, two MSc (one in Public Health and one in Statistics) and a PhD in epidemiology. I enjoy explaining what research results in the areas of diabetes and heart disease mean to members of the public and using all forms of the media to effectively promote public health messages.

I have provided numerous radio and television interviews mainly concerned with results from my own research and have also written a number of press releases.
