My main research area is the chemistry of enamel and hydroxyapatite in the context of de and remineralisation of enamel. Recently, I have developed research into the influence of salivary proteins on these processes, to study their role in enamel homeostasis. I have developed novel X-ray absorption microscopies to assist with these studies, and have also used these technologies to study diffusion processes in enamel, and the efficacy of treatments for dental hypersensitivity. I have been sponsored by the MRC, EPSRC, Wellcome, as well as RAB, and QMUL grants. I currently have several PhD students, and a Postdoctoral research assistant.
