My research focuses on factors that influence adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes especially preeclampsia and prematurity

I am a first year DPhil student at the Nuffield Department of Women's & Reproductive Health.  I am based at the John Radcliffe hospital and I work under the supervision of Dr. Manu Vatish and Professor Stephen Kennedy. 

My  research is focused on adverse maternal and perinatal outcome especially pre-eclampsia and pre-maturity in women of African descent as compared to other parts of the world with the hope that it will shed more light on the patterns and pathogenesis where applicable. 

I had my graduated as a medical doctor from the prestigious University of Ibadan, Nigeria in 2016 followed immediately by a year of medical and surgical internship training at the University College Hospital, Ibadan and another year for the volunteering for the federal government of Nigeria. I was awarded the Rhodes Scholarship in 2018 which is funding my study here.
