Research interests: 
  1. The fetal origins of the most common human male reproductive disorders of newborn and young adult males, which is also called 'Testicular Dysgenesis Syndrome'. 

  2. A general and basic understanding of the development and function of the testis and male reproductive tract and how physiology, endocrinology, biochemistry and molecular biology play their parts in this development and how mis-development could result in male reproductive health disorders.

  3. Effects of environmental chemical exposures and lifestyle factors on the development of the testis, the reproductive tract and their functions, which affects spermatogenesis and fertility.

  4. Fetal programming of adult (male) diseases, focussing on male reproductive health and function.

  5. Male reproductive toxicology.
