I trained in Human Biology and came to LSHTM to study Medical Demography and Epidemiology. I spent some time working at the Royal London Hospital, but most of my working life has been at LSHTM.

Teaching

I enjoy teaching and teach on a variety of courses and study units including: basic and extended epidemiology; foundations of reproductive health; environmental epidemiology; epidemiology and control of non-communicable diseases; short course in epidemiology and medical statistics.

Research

My research is mainly in the field of reproductive epidemiology. I am interested in the determinants of male and female infertility and adverse outcomes of pregnancy such as fetal death, preterm birth, congenital malformation and other paediatric conditions. I have worked on several large occupational studies including men and women within the UK nuclear industry and the UK military. Another area of interest is assessment of the consequences of infertility and infertility treatment in the UK population. More recently I have been helping to co-ordinate a centre focussed on reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health within the school, MARCH (http://march.lshtm.ac.uk/). I also have an interest in the epidemiology of neurological conditions. Since 2008 I have been working on the Wellcome Trust Capacity Building Programme for the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI, http://www.phfi.org/), a collaboration between UK Institutions and PHFI.
