For the last ten years, I have worked in clinical epidemiology at Imperial College and now at UCL. I supervised the 20 year follow-up of the SABRE tri-ethnic cohort study and many aspects of analysis of the baseline and follow-up data. I am closely involved with the planned 25 year follow-up study of this unique cohort.
My main areas of interest centre on the epidemiology of ethnic differences in cardiovascular and metabolic disorders and the mechanisms underlying these differences. I am particularly interested in the effects of diabetes and insulin resistance on cardiovascular disease risk in ethnic minority groups and in identifying how and why these disorders appear to have a more harmful effect in people of South Asian or African Caribbean origin than in comparable Europeans.
I have most recently taught epidemiology on the Cardiovascular Science BSc at Imperial College London.
