Research

I am an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist. My research has two major aims. The first is to advance the understanding and management of obstetric conditions associated with poor outcomes for both women and babies, especially relating to placental dysfunction and untimely birth. The second major aim of my research is to excel in the delivery of obstetric care through research into best methods.
