Research interests

My PhD thesis was titled 'The clinical and psychosocial status of young adults receiving renal replacement therapy in the United Kingdom' and involved evidence synthesis, survival analysis in a registry dataset, survey analysis with general population comparator data and regression analysis to explore associations with key outcomes.

I was the Chief Investigator for the SPEAK study (Surveying People Experiencing young Adult Kidney failure). This was a national survey-based study which established psychosocial health outcomes for young people on dialysis or with a kidney transplant, and closed to recruitment in 2017.

I am currently researching interventions to improve outcomes for young adults with kidney disease. In addition, I am investigating risk factors for declining kidney transplant function among young people in the UK using UK Renal Registry and NHSBT data.

My prior research interests include the genetics of Fanconi syndrome, monogenic diabetes, the genetics of atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome, and accidental mushroom poisoning causing renal failure.
