Research Interests

As an immunologist one of the major challenges is to understand how the immune system either causes or fails to prevent chronic inflammation. My main interest has been in trying to understand chronic inflammatory disease processes that affect epithelial surfaces where there are varying degrees of 'interface' between the organ and the external environment.

My main interest is in how the immune system is involved in chronic inflammatory disease processes. In particular I have been working on disease associated with chronic inflammation in the lungs (allergy, lung cancer, fibrosis and chlamydial infection), skin, gut and reproductive tract – all areas where the immune system interfaces with the external environment. There are both similarities and differences which characterise immunopathology in these body sites.
