ResearchMy research interests involve the dietary modulation of inflammation in metabolic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnoea and cardiovascular disease. Also I have a keen interest in gene-nutrient interactions and collaborate with the international CHARGE consortium for genome wide association studies.
