My main area of research in recent years has been the cardio-respiratory system of mammals. I have developed simplified models of lung mechanics, gas exchange and neural control of breathing and studied different aspects of the integrated system. I have also studied the interactions between the heart and the lungs and contributed to a study of optimal nutritional intake of pregnant sheep and modelling high speed weighing systems.
Regulation and function of the cardio-respiratory system.
