Key Research Interests

The epidemiology of emerging infectious disease especially that linked to environmental factors. Most interest in spread of infection by drinking water, but also recreational water contact and food. Interest in zoonotic diseases. Conducting case-control and other epidemiological studies in the UK, Europe and the developing world. Interest in risk assessment and risk communication

Research Group Membership

Infection and Immunity

Teaching Interests

Primary interest in teaching medical students that infectious diseases remain a major cause of morbidity and mortality even in developed societies, but especially in developing countries. Also getting across the message that research is fun, especially research into infectious disease in general and diarrhoea in particular.
