DPhil Supervision

I am a Professor of Primary Care Research and a GP. My research interests include cardiovascular disease and its prevention, particularly the management of hypertension in primary care. I currently lead programmes of research around self-monitoring of blood pressure in both hypertension and pregnancy and welcome students wishing to base projects in these areas.
