Senior research fellow in health services research, University of Leicester

As a health services researcher in The Infant Mortality and Morbidity Studies group (TIMMS), I have a particular interest in trying to improve the outcomes for pregnant women, parents and babies by combining the strengths of statistical analyses using routine data with qualitative studies of health professionals’ practice and parents’ experiences.

My main research interests are:

Socio-economic inequalities in infant mortality and morbidity
Management of babies born at the limits of viability (See this video)
Using mixed methods in perinatal epidemiology
Use of large-scale routine health data to monitor inequalities in health
