Duncan has a background in sociology with long standing research expertise in treatment approaches for people with drug and/or alcohol problems. He leads a portfolio of work on ageing, multimorbidity and alcohol consumption.

This includes evaluation of existing interventions and the development and trialling of new ones. His current research focus is alcohol consumption among older people with multiple long term conditions. He has worked on a wide range of research projects including qualitative studies, systematic reviews, randomised controlled trials, cohort and epidemiological studies, and research to develop and evaluate research/clinical assessment instruments.
