Personal profile

Research interests

My work focuses on the life course epidemiology of women's reproductive health and its relationship with chronic disease risk in later life. I am particularly interested in the relationship between pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampsia, preterm delivery, fetal growth restriction and gestational diabetes and later cardiometabolic health in both mothers and their offspring.

I utilise analytical approaches such as family based studies and instrumental variable approaches to improve casual inference and co-organise the Causal Inference in Epidemiology: Concepts and Methods short course.
