Clinical Research Training Fellow & DPhil Student

  • DPhil student

I completed my undergraduate training at the University of Bristol before undertaking clinical training in obstetrics and gynaecology in the Thames Valley region. I now work clinically as a consultant obstetrician at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.

I have in interest in digital health, particularly the development of novel digital tools to assist with risk stratification in the antenatal and postnatal period. I have completed a Topol Fellowship in digital health, which has lead to ongoing work with the National Centre for Maternity Improvement as a Fellow for Future Development, including work on the expansion of the 'Tommy's App'. I have also been admitted by peer review as a member of the Faculty of Clinical Informatics.

My DPhil project will explore the use of 3D ultrasound combined with machine learning techniques to assess the volume and vascularity of the placenta in the first trimester, with the aim of improving the prediction of adverse pregnancy outcomes including pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction.
