My research focuses on the application of evolutionary and ecological principles to human medical and psychiatric illness. My work also explores the intersection of veterinary and human medicine looking for common origins of vulnerability to many the many diseases and disorders shared by human and non-human animals. Drawing on my background as a cardiologist and psychiatrist and my work as a cardiovascular consultant to zoos, I am engaged in expanding the window through which the nature and origin of disease are understood.
