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