Professor of Psychological Medicine

My research aims to understand the psychiatric aspects of medical illness and its treatment, to develop novel interventions that are integrated with and intended to enhance medical care and to evaluate these in rigorous clinical trials.

Current interests are in developing integrated medical-psychiatric treatments and services especially for people with depression comorbid with medical conditions such as cancer and diabetes, for people with symptoms that are not well explained by disease processes (so-called medically unexplained symptoms) and for people with chronic fatigue syndrome.

I am a fellow of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of London and Edinburgh and of the UK Royal College of Psychiatrists, serve as Chairman of the Research Comittee and Council member for the American Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine (APM), and lead a theme on medical-psychiatric comorbidity in the Oxford Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC.)
