I completed my undergraduate degree in Human Sciences at the University of Oxford (2005-2008), before taking up a research fellowship at the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology to work on various international maternal health projects, including the INTERGROWTH-21st project. I completed my MSc (by research) in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 2011.

In 2018 I completed a PhD in Health Services Research and Policy at the LSHTM under the guidance of Dr David Cromwell and Dr Ipek Gurol-Urganci. My thesis focussed on the development and application of techniques to evaluate the performance and quality of maternity care services in the UK, using linked data from large clinical and administrative databases.

I am primarily based the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), where I am the programme manager for the National Maternity and Perinatal Audit as well as working on various other service evaluation projects in women's health.

Research

My research interests are in epidemiology and health service evaluation, particularly focusing on the performance and quality of maternity services. I am primarily interested in the determinents of variation in both the processes and outcomes of maternity care in the UK.

I am involved in a number of national studies at the RCOG, including Each Baby Counts and the National Maternity and Perinatal Audit.
