Dr Riches-Suman’s main area of focus is cardiovascular health, especially heart disease and diabetes. She is interested in the link between Type 2 diabetes and the risk of heart attack and stroke and the treatment of those conditions in people with Type 2 diabetes. 
Dr Riches-Suman’s work also looks at the premature ageing of blood vessels in people with Type 2 diabetes and is working with PhD students on developing diagnostic tests that GPs and clinics could use in surgeries to test the age of a patient’s blood vessels.
Another area of interest is the mental health of postgraduates and how this can be improved.
