His main research interests span treatment outcomes in MS and other neuroimmunological diseases, personalised therapy, prognostics (including emerging biomarkers), causal inference, epidemiology and harnessing emerging knowledge about the pathogenesis of neuroimmunological conditions to guide individual treatment decisions.
