    Personal profile


    I am a medical doctor (board-certified obstetrician), and a maternal and perinatal health epidemiologist with extensive experience working in the field of women’s health in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and developed countries. I have substantial interests in epidemiological research arising from electronic health records and surveys, with particular focus on sexual and reproductive health (including contraceptive practices), pregnancy with multimorbidity, quality of maternity care, perinatal outcomes and long-term effects of birth outcomes, health inequalities and clinical governance.

    I was a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) Maternal and Perinatal Health Guideline Steering Committee and had co-edited two global maternal health guideline for WHO. I enjoy collaborating with academic colleagues both in the UK and across the globe.
