I have interests in particulate airborne pollution and human respiratory health. Specific particles of interest are geologically-sourced such as, volcanic ash, desert storm dust, and quarry dust. Research is now concentrating on 'toxic' cocktails of mineral dusts and anthropogenic emissions from fossil fuel burning.

I am co-leader of the 'Airborne Particles and Lungs' Research Group, a long-running interdisciplinary collaboration, which monitors, collects, characterises, and determines the bioreactivity of particles. I retain an interest in fossil charcoal; the subject of my Ph.D.
