Research interests

My research interests are primarily centred on identification of early life factors associated with the development of asthma and allergies in children. I work with the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALPSAC) cohort, where I have established a programme of respiratory follow up that includes lung function measurements, assessment of allergies and longitudinal infromation on wheezing illnesses and asthma through childhood. Recent work has focused on identifying different phenotypes of asthma in early childhood and investigating differential genetic and environmental influences on their development. The ALSPAC cohort has also made substantial contibutions to international collaborations to conduct genomewide association studies (GWAS) of asthma and allergies; we are currently leading a GWAS of early childhood wheezing phenotypes in collaboration with the The EArly Genetics and Lifecourse Epidemiology (EAGLE) consortium.
