Investigating the pathogenetic mechanisms and clinicopathological associations of the autoimmune blistering diseases pemphigus vulgaris and mucous membrane pemphigoid as well as the more common autoimmune disease lichen planus. As a clinical academic I also lead research developing disease specific clinical outcome measures so that treatment can be optimised. I collaborate nationally and internationally in these areas and am a member of the European Task Force for autoimmune blistering diseases responsible for developing European Guidelines.
Aside from looking after my family, I enjoy sailing and skiing
