Research interests

His research has focussed on sleep-disordered breathing. He has developed an interdsiciplinary clinical research programme, spanning the study of the causes, consequences, diagnosis and management of sleep-disordered breathing. A focus has been on 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 interaction with obesity to promote breathing impairment during sleep, the genetic underpinnings of these relationships, and their diagnostic and therapeutic implications. Another theme is the impact of sleep disordered breathing on chronic diseases such as chronic respiratory disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabtetes, and quadriplegia. A feature of the work has been the conduct of rigorous clinical trials evaluating the health outcomes of novel therapies (such as oral appliances) in the management of sleep-disordered breathing. Other research interests include the role of new technologies as enablers of simplfied models of care for diagnosis and long-term monitoring of patients with sleep-disordered breathing.
