His immunobiology research explores the acute and longer term changes in immunoglobulins, free light chains and B lymphocyte abnormalities in sepsis related critical illness, alongside neutrophil surface markers of infection. His epidemiology research explores the reasons for international variations in sepsis epidemiology, how heterogeneity in sepsis outcomes could inform health policy and the determinants of long-term mortality in sepsis acute illness survivors.
