Research Interests

Head of the Leicester Maxillofacial Research Group and Academic Champion, a member of the British Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons Researchers Group and active in my role to support staff interested in undertaking Audit & Research. Previously held positions in Leicester as Honorary Associate Professor in Cancer studies, Departmental Lead for Audit and Morbidity & Mortality, Chairman of the Head & Neck Cancer Multidisciplinary team and Regional Head & Neck oncology representative for the National Institute of Health Research, UK.

As a result of my strong research interests, I have published over 80 papers in peer-reviewed journals and a number of book chapters.

My main areas of research have included:

  • oral cancer & reconstruction
  • wound care management
  • finite element analysis and bioengineering
  • salivary gland tumours and infective disease
  • maxillofacial trauma

Leicester has been a UK “hotspot” for Maxillofacial presentations and publications.
