DPhil Supervision

I am a Professor of Primary Care  and a GP. My research interests include cardiovascular disease and its prevention, particularly the management of hypertension in primary care. I  lead programmes of research around self-monitoring of blood pressure in both hypertension and pregnancy and welcome students wishing to base projects in these areas.

self-monitoring of blood pressure in pregnancy and essential hypertension

My research interests lie mainly in the prevention of cardiovascular disease with particular emphasis on blood pressure measurement and the management of hypertension in primary care.

I am an NIHR Senior Investigator and NIHR Research Professor (2013-18). I lead a programme of research around self-monitoring of blood pressure in hypertension and pregnancy. I lead the self-management theme of the NIHR Oxford CLAHRC.

I supervise PhD/DPhil students undertaking projects in hypertension and blood pressure monitoring in pregnancy.

I chair the Blood Pressure Monitoring Working Party of the British Hypertension Society. I provide expert advice to NICE (member of 2011 and 2019 Hypertension Guideline Committees), and the European Societies of Hypertension & Cardiology (2018 Hypertension Guideline Committee).
