My research interest lies in the haemodynamic consequences of ageing, with a particular focus on arterial stiffening and central blood pressure. I am also interested in the factors underlying the development of hypertension in young individuals, including the influence of ethnicity. I am centrally involved in the Anglo-Cardiff Collaborative Trial, a large, community-based investigation into the influence of ageing on blood pressure and arterial haemodynamics and I lead the ENIGMA and ENIGMA-Ethnicity Studies, both large, longitudinal follow-up studies investigating the natural history of blood pressure in young adults.
