Her research group works to improve the understanding of atrial fibrillation (AF), and she has become one of the UK's leading experts in the complex processes behind AF, when signals controlling the effective spread of the heart beat are not working properly. She also runs projects looking at a possible link between AF and inflammation, which is particularly linked to coronary heart disease, the major cause of heart attacks.
