Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
I am a Principal Research Associate at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I apply statistical methods to investigate risk factors of adverse pregnancy outcomes. For example, I have studied the risk of fetal growth restriction using an untargeted metabolomics approach (https://www.medschl.cam.ac.uk/study-predicts-fetal-growth-restriction-using-metabolomics/).
