Research Interests

My research interests include:

- Discovery and validation of blood and imaging biomarkers of unstable atherosclerosis in the cerebrovascular circulation

- Discovery and validation of blood and imaging biomarkers for detection and diagnosis of transient ischaemic attack and ischaemic stroke

- Development and validation of prediction models and clinical prediction tools for risk stratification and prognosis after transient ischaemic attack and stroke

- Population based epidemiology of stroke and transient ischaemic attack

- Phase 2, 3, and 4 studies of therapeutic agents to prevent stroke, coronary disease, and vascular cognitive decline in high risk individuals
