I am a medical doctor specialising in medical microbiology and virology and have worked as a consultant in my primary speciality and in communicable disease control and as an epidemiologist. My research interests are the epidemiology and spread of emerging infectious disease, especially those with a zoonotic origin. Most interest in environmental transmission, especially water borne, food borne and vectorborne diseases. I have had many years investigating outbreaks of infectious diease and have conducted case-control and other epidemiological studies in the UK, Europe and the developing world. I have published research on many of the major emerging infections over the past two decades including SARS, cholera, Avian flu, Dengue fever, Ebola, Zikavirus and covid.
