Research

Research interests

I am interested in the prevalence and impact of psychological issues and mood disorders related to X-linked Ichthyosis, a congenital skin disorder prevalent in 1:200-6000 males and dermatologically characterised by brown, scaly skin, as well as associated extracutaneous manifestations. My research focuses upon collecting quantitative data surrounding the relationship between XLI-associated genetic deletions and mood disorders, as well as qualitative data exploring the impact of these psychological factors. I am also interested in further understanding the experiences of XLI-patients, with reference to a potential increased risk of atrial fibrillation and attitudes towards heart screenings.
