Psychiatric aspects of medical illness and treatment

My research aims to understand the psychiatric aspects of medical illnesses and their treatments, to develop novel interventions for these that are integrated with medical care and to evaluate these in rigorous clinical trials.

My current interests are in developing integrated medical-psychiatric treatments and services especially for people with depression that is comorbid with medical conditions such as cancer and for elderly medical inpatients.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of London and Edinburgh and of the UK Royal College of Psychiatrists.

I serve as a member of the governing council of the American Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine (APM) and as a member of the executive of the European Association of Psychosomatic Medicine (EAPM). I am theme lead for medical-psychiatric multi-morbidity in the Oxford NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) and a named investigator in both Oxford Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs)
