My research interests include haemostasis in cardiac and high risk surgery and cerebral monitoring in cardiac surgery.

I am Chair of the Media Committee of the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) and a member of the ESA Transfusion and Haemostasis Committee. I am also a member of the UK and European Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesiologists where I serve on the Haemostasis and Thrombosis Committee.

I have run several phase II and III clinical trials as principal investigator and am one of the authors of Europe’s first Patient Blood Management Guidelines.
