His research interests include immunoreconstitution following haematopoietic stem cell transplant for primary immunodeficiency, long-term outcomes of transplantation for primary immunodeficiency and in particular, Chronic Granulomatous Disease and DNA repair disorders and their appropriate treatment. More recently, he has adapted new methods of T cell depletion for patients with primary immunodeficiency, and established extracorporeal photopheresis for the treatment of children with graft versus host disease. He has co-authored important multi-centre publications on the outcomes of cohorts of children with rare primary immunodeficiencies following HSCT.

He is a member of the European Society for Immunodeficiencies (ESID) and the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation and currently Chair of the ESID Clinical Working Party group. He has published a number of papers on primary immunodeficiency and contributed to relevant chapters in several major textbooks.
