DPhil Supervision

My clinical and research interests are in primary care paediatrics, specifically common childhood infection, vaccine preventable infection, the early diagnosis of serious disease and clinical trials in children. My current research includes projects on influenza, whooping cough, the development of quality indicators for the care of children in UK general practice, Kawasaki disease and a confidential enquiry in child deaths in Africa. I have recently been awarded a 5 year NIHR programme grant to study the early use of antibiotics in ‘at risk’ children with influenza. Within this grant there are a number of potential nested projects involving clinical trial, qualitative, microbiological, health economic and clinical prediction rules research.
