Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses comparative glucocorticoid biology and in particular the role of glucocorticoid metabolism in health and disease. Working with experimental models, veterinary clinical cases and human data I investigate the relationships between glucocorticoid metabolism and the morbidities associated with obesity as well as the role of glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid receptor activation in disease processes.
