I am a vascular surgeon and Professor of Vascular Surgery at UWA. My primary research interests include all aspects of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), the epidemiology and management of peripheral arterial disease, the pathogenesis of diabetic arterial disease and the assessment of cardiovascular risk.

I have led large scale population-based studies such as the Western Australia AAA Screening Programme and the Health In Men Study (HIMS), and most recently have been involved with the WHO working party on the Global Burden of Disease assessment.
