He is an associate editor for the Journal of the Intensive Care Society (JICS) and chairperson for the research subcommittee for the commissioned UK ECMO network for adults with severe respiratory failure. His lab examine mechanisms of cell death induced organ injury and inflammation within critical care disease states including cardiac failure, respiratory failure and ICU acquired weakness. He is also chief investigator of a number of clinical trials examining the clinical utility of physiology-based ventilation algorithms (based on a combination of artificial intelligence and decision theory) to personalise mechanical ventilation and understand cardiopulmonary physiology during mechanical ventilation.
