Profile

I joined the University of Sheffield in 2003 as Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Obstetrics and Fetal Medicine, following research and clinical training in Newcastle University and hospitals in Yorkshire and the Northern region.

I was accredited a specialist in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 1999, and a subspecialist in Maternal and Fetal Medicine in 2001. Since 2003, I have maintained busy clinical (Obstetrics, Fetomaternal Medicine), research and teaching roles.

Research interests

I investigate the physiology of human parturition, particularly the role of immunity and inflammation in term/preterm labour and pregnancy complications such as hypertension, fetal growth restriction and stillbirth. I am also investigating new techniques to predict preterm birth by the detection of cervical remodelling changes as well as changes in the vaginal microbiome and metabolome.

I run specialist clinics in Prenatal Diagnosis and Fetal Therapy, Prematurity Prevention, and High-Risk Pregnancy, all of which have research spin-offs.

Teaching interests

My main interest is postgraduate medical training and teaching.

I am Faculty of Medicine and South Yorkshire Director for Clinical Academic Training, and also Undergraduate Module Lead for Phase 3A Women´s Health, and Postgraduate Lead for the Pregnancy and Fetus Module of the MSc programme in Reproductive and Developmental Medicine.

I am Training Programme Supervisor for the Maternal and Fetal Medicine subspecialty training programme, Sheffield and serve on the South Yorkshire Foundation Training School Board, Clinical Academic Working Group, and Specialty Training Committee in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Professional activities

I am Vice Chair of the Academic Board of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and serve on several other related organs. I am Lead Clinician of the Fetal Medicine Unit, Sheffield. I served on the NICE Medical Technologies Advisory Committee (MTAC).
