Research Interests:

Occupational physician and epidemiologist with expertise in occupational lung diseases.

Specific Research areas:

1) Asbestos-related diseases, in particular lung cancer and mesothelioma

2) Occupational asthma, COPD, ILD

3) Occupational exposure methods, and development of new efficient web-based tools

4) Gene-environment interactions in occupational lung diseases

5) Climate change and occupational health co-benefits


Current Research Projects:

I am currently working on the HSE-COPD study in the UK Biobank, a cohort set up to improve our understanding of the environmental and genetic causes of common diseases that recruited 500,000 men and women aged 40-69 from the UK general population.

The overarching goal of the HSE-COPD study is to identify the occupational causes of COPD and related burden in the UK general population in order to implement focused preventive strategies at workplace.


TEACHING:

Course organizer and lecturer on epidemiology and statistical methods, occupational lung diseases and occupational health surveillance.
