Research interests

I am a respiratory epidemiologist with a long-standing interest in the epidemiology of asthma and the health effects of air pollution.  My early air pollution research was into the effects of indoor biomass burning in Papua New Guinea but over recent decades I have been mainly concerned with outdoor air pollution.  The body of my research in this area has been concerned with time-series studies in the UK, Europe and Hong Kong and has included extensive systematic reviews and meta-analyses of time-series studies.  More recently I have been investigating the effects of long term exposure to air pollution using health datasets from the UK and ISAAC. My main current interest is in investigating the health effects of traffic pollution in London.
