My research interests are in public mental health, multiple morbidity, health inequalities and health systems, especially primary care. I lead Imperial's public mental health work as part of the national NIHR School of Public Health Research. I am the NIHR's Clinical Research Network's speciality lead for health services research and the population health lead for the NIHR's Applied Research Collaboration in North West London. In collaboration with Open University of Mauritius I developed a distance learning Masters in Public Health.
