    Personal profile

    Research interests

    My research interests include the effects of UVR on immune function, DNA photodamage and its repair, risk factors for skin cancer, UVR-induced oxidative damage and the role of antioxidants, photosensitization (with Dr Robert Sarkany and Dr Susan Walker), endogenous and exogenous photoprotection and how the skin adapts to repeated low dose UVR exposure.  I have a long-standing interest in action spectroscopy (wavelength dependence of photobiology effects) and the public health implications.
