His research has focussed on Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, and he has developed a thematic clinical research programme, working at the interface between upper airway anatomy and physiology, and orofacial biology. This research programme has been evaluating the relationships between craniofacial and upper airway morphology and their relevance to breathing during sleep, and the resultant diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these relationships. A feature of the work has been the conduct of rigorous scientific studies evaluating the clinical role of oral appliances in the management of OSA. Other research interests include cardiovascular and neurocognitive consequences of sleep-disordered breathing, and the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for sleep apnoea.
