I have been an active researcher for 25 years and have published several papers in peer reviewed journals including the Lancet, Gut and Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics.
The main themes of my research are colitis, adherence to medication, patient information and participation in decision-making. I have supervised several PhD students and led on several New Drug trials at Salford Royal Hospital.
I have a passion for travel, gardening and the great outdoors. I used to enjoy basic horse-riding until I got thrown once too often and I am still searching for a new mid-life hobby.
