Her interests include lung fibrosis, asthma, chronic obstructive airways disease, lung infection, cough, and a broad range of general respiratory and general medical conditions.

Rachel has a national profile in ILD, is a regular speaker at national conferences. She is a current member of the ILD Specialist Advisory Group, advising the British Thoracic Society on national policy, has an advisory role with the British Lung Foundation in forming a Patient Charter.
