Biography

My interests are in the genetic epidemiology of common eye diseases such as myopia, cataract and glaucoma, using twin studies to model the heritability of these traits and modern high-throughput genotyping technology such as genome-wide association scans which we have on over 5000 twin subjects in the Department of Twin Research & Genetic Epidemiology.

I am also a Clinical Consultant Ophthalmologist based at St Thomas' Hospital, London, specialising in the management of strabismus (squint) in adults and in children, including squint surgery and botulinum toxin injections.
