About me

Rachel qualified in Cambridge, and trained in London before taking up her current appointment in the Oxford Centre for Respiratory Medicine in 2009. She completed a successful clinical and translational PhD project at the Royal Brompton and Royal Free Hospitals investigating the role of lung injury in scleroderma-associated lung fibrosis.

Her interests include lung fibrosis, asthma, chronic obstructive airways disease, lung infection, cough, and a broad range of general respiratory and general medical conditions.

Rachel is the lead clinician for the Oxford Interstitial Lung Disease Service at Oxford university Hospitals, and leads the Oxford Interstitial Lung Disease Service; her service was recognised as a national specialist centre for interstitial lung disease (ILD) in 2014. Rachel has a national profile in ILD, is a regular speaker at national conferences. She has had roles in the ILD Specialist Advisory Group, advising the British Thoracic Society on implementation of national policy, and as an advisor to the British Lung Foundation in forming a Patient Charter.

Rachel’s active research interests include clinical trials in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (via the active UKCRC Oxford Respiratory Trials Unit), lung diseases associated with vasculitis, immunosuppressant strategies in lung disease associated with rheumatological problems, and imaging modalities and outcomes in lung fibrosis.
