Research interests

Slade's research is focussed on stress and heart disease, diabetes and clinical factors affecting drug metabolism. Machine learning algorithms, statistical analysis and analysis of heart rate variability are his key research techniques.

Teaching and supervision

Slade is the coordinator of the 3rd year course, Toxicology, and his teaching is focussed in the areas of non-clinical toxicology, pharmacokinetics and data analysis for detection of toxicity.
