My research is focussed on monitoring and diagnosis, particularly using "vital signs" such as heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen levels, temperature, blood pressure, and capillary refill time.
I have particular interests in paediatrics (children) and respiratory diseases, as well as in the accuracy of monitoring technology used by clinicians and patients.
I am particularly keen to supervise students considering research on monitoring and diagnosis. I have experience in systematic reviewing, and would welcome students intending to carry out a systematic review as part of their dissertation.
