I’m a postdoctoral researcher at King’s College London. I have recently been focussing on investigating overdose and respiratory depression among heroin users who are in diamorphine maintenance treatment and therefore receive pharmaceutical diamorphine and preparing a portable version of the respiratory monitoring equipment. I have also developed a separate line of research on injecting motion signatures with colleagues within KCL addiction department.
