He initiated (1987-1990) and was Director (1990 - 1997) of the Birth To Ten birth-cohort study in Soweto-Johannesburg, South Africa which has studied the effect of the urban environment on the growth, development, health and wellbeing of over 3000 children. His current research interests include factors affecting the development of peak bone mass during adolescence, factors influencing the acquisition of obesity during childhood and adolescence, and the determinants of sedentary behaviour in adolescents. Funding for his research is through the Wellcome Trust, the South African Medical research Council, the Anglo-American Corporation, the University of the Witwatersrand, and Loughborough University.
