I am a Lecturer in Environmental Toxicology & Biomarkers in the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London. My main research interests are in the application of molecular profiling technologies – primarily metabolic profiling using NMR- and MS-based platforms – to study aspects of human health and disease. A key research question of importance is how to improve exposure assessment in individuals, small area studies and molecular epidemiology projects investigating environmental exposures. I am also interested in addressing the need for a more comprehensive understanding of the toxicological implications of emerging materials such as nanoparticles. At present, a number of large-scale projects focused on developing the concept of the exposome are underway, and present new opportunities for metabolic research to help understand links between environmental exposures and human health outcomes.
