Key Research Interests and Expertise

My main research interests include assessment of upper and lower airway function and disease activity using physiological assessment and surrogate measures of airway inflammation including bronchial and nasal challenge testing, induced sputum examination, nasal lavage and epithelial sampling and exhaled gas analysis. I have an interest in the pharmacological, nutritional and environmental effects on respiratory airways disease including asthma, rhinitis, emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Other research interests include the effect of matrix metalloproteases on airway remodelling and the delivery of drugs to the airways.
