Clinical activities and interests/research

I have particular expertise in thoracic pathology and conduct research into thoracic cancers, including sarcomas, lung cancer, mesothelioma and thymic tumours, as well other thoracic diseases such as interstitial lung disease. I am referred over 300 cases each year for diagnosis from clinicians and other pathologists both nationally and internationally. I lecture regularly at regional, national and international levels, both as a guest speaker at international conferences and as a stand-alone teacher at specific lung pathology courses.  I am past chair of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) Pathology Panel, as well as a member of the IASLC Staging and Prognostic Factors Committee. I have co-authored over 380 peer-reviewed publications, and also co-authored Pathology of the Lung, second and third editions (Churchill Livingstone 2006 and 2011) with B Corrin, and am a Volume Editor of the 2015 WHO classification of lung, pleura, thymus and heart tumours.
