Research interests

The regulation of blood pressure is tightly regulated in the resistance blood vessels within the body; therefore understanding how these vessels vasodilate and vasoconstrict is of considerable importance. My research studies the evolution of signalling pathways in the vasculature of vertebrates. In particular, I focus on nitric oxide and endothelium-derived hyperpolarisation in non-mammalian vertebrates and how these systems have evolved comparatively to mammals.
