His initial work was with the Tropical Metabolic Research Unit (TMRU). Following this he spearheaded the formation of the Tropical Medical Research Institute, which merged the TMRU, the Sickle Cell Research Unit, the Epidemiology Research Unit at Mona, Jamaica and the Chronic Disease Research Unit in Barbados, thus unifying four research units, across three campuses of the University of the West Indies.
His major research focus has been on the cause of hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases. He has examined the risk and impacts of obesity; metabolic programming of early life and the constraints on fetal growth; and understanding the economic implications of chronic diseases and their interventions.
