Personal profile

Research expertise

I am a post-doctoral research fellow within the Sexual and Reproductive Health unit working on maternal, perinatal, and newborn health with a focus on preventing stillbirths and improving outcomes for women and newborns. I hold a PhD in Public Health from the University of Sydney, Australia, a Masters of International Health from Curtin University, Australia and a Bachelor of Science (Microbiology and Pathology) from the University of Western Australia.

My current research centres on strengthening the data and reporting on stillbirths and newborn deaths within health systems and from the community level to better understand why they occur and to inform strategies for prevention. I apply both quantitative and qualitative methods and am especially interested in strengthening health systems to improve quality of care in low-resource and fragile settings. I am currently partnering with CERRHUD (Centre de Recherche en Reproduction Humaine et en Démographie) in Benin, The National Maternal and Child Health Centre (NMCHC) in Cambodia and with the World Health Organization and Jhpiego in Afghanistan.

Prior to joining ITM, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Sydney School of Public Health, University of Sydney in maternal and perinatal health and where I also hold an honorary position. I have also previously worked at the icddr,b in Bangladesh on several maternal and newborn health programming and evaluation projects and at The George Institute for Global Health in Australia on various injury prevention programs.
