Dr Groves' principal research interest is in neonatal haemodynamics. In collaboration with physicists, cardiologists and imaging scientists his teams at Imperial College and King's College London have previously demonstrated that cardiac MR can be used to obtain high quality images of cardiac function even in preterm infants weighing less than 600 grams. Images can be obtained without sedation or respiratory compensation. Steady state free procession and phase contrast techniques have been applied to accurately assess cardiac filling, contractility, regional blood flow and impact of ductal steal. A major focus of his four-year MRC Clinician Scientist Fellowship (2008-2012) was also to develop ultrasound techniques for the optimal cotside study of the newborn circulation.

His long-term aim is to facilitate reductions in mortality and morbidity in newborn infants through improvements in circulatory monitoring and support.
