My work considers mtDNA disease through the prism of evolution, applying a number of techniques to develop methods to identify pathogenic mtDNA mutations. I also work on the role of mtDNA population variation in common disease, inclusive of projects centred round a single disease and method development. Others papers centre on fundamentals of mitochondrial genetics including inheritance and the selective forces that have shaped mtDNA variation in modern human populations.
