My research interests are related to the functional properties of smooth muscle, specifically the vascular smooth muscle of resistance arteries whose activity regulates blood pressure and flow and ureteral smooth muscle that regulates urine bolus transport to the urinary bladder. Recent efforts have focussed on the paracrine modulation of smooth muscle contractility by surrounding adipose tissue. My main responsibilities within the School lie within the education domain; I contribute to the administration of the undergraduate entry to medicine degree programme as Chair of Medicine Degrees Committee 1 and I have acted as Project Champion in the Curriculum Review & Enhancement Process (2015-2017). I coordinate and contribute to a number of modules that feed into the medicine and science degree programmes.
