Bio/Research

My main interest areas are maternal and child health. Over my career, my epidemiological research has covered various aspects of health research in this population group including: health services research (regionalization of perinatal care); population health surveillance; and determinants of health (with particular interest in small-for-gestational-age infants and premature infants). Typically, I conduct research on population-based samples using cohort or case-control designs.

Currently, my research program is mainly focused on determinants of preterm birth and outcomes of preterm birth. Preterm birth is a major health problem. Although only 7% of all births are preterm, these births account for 75% of perinatal mortality and morbidity. Survivors of preterm birth are at high risk for ongoing health problems and developmental disorders.
