She is particularly interested in echocardiography including stress echocardiography and transoesophageal echocardiography. She has a special interest in cardiac amyloidosis and her work includes the screening and follow up of patients for this condition at the National Amyloidosis Centre based at the Royal Free Hospital.

In 1987 Professor Philip Hawkins, together with Professor Sir Mark Pepys FRS, developed the SAP scan. This is the only existing method for non-invasive diagnosis and comprehensive follow up of amyloidosis in all parts of the body. The NAC is the only place in the world where the SAP scan is routinely available.
