Research

I will use my background in anaesthetics and applied physiology to attempt to understand the epidemiological observation of poor birthoutcomes associated with maternal exposure to heat stress.

In the context of climate change, much of the world will experience extreme heat events and very little work is being done globally to understand the impact of these on maternal and fetal health. In areas where the options to adapt to the heat exposure are limited, a clearer understanding of the causes of poor birth outcomes as well options of adaptation strategies are sorely needed.
