My main methodological interest is Conversation Analysis, which I use to analyse interactions in healthcare. I am currently looking at phone conversations between GPs and community pharmacists.

I participate in research with departmental colleagues in medical education, especially related to our SECO clinic method of simulation teaching.

I have also taken part in our research stream on Communities of Clinical Practice.

In addition, I am interested in clinical topics including child obesity and screening.
