Research focus

My research focuses on reducing preterm birth and stillbirth, and improving treatments to prevent complications in pregnancy.  Each year more than 15 million babies are born preterm, and 2.5 million are stillborn. My aim is to develop better ways of predicting and diagnosing pregnancy complications enabling safe, personalised care for mothers and babies.
