Throughout my training as an Obstetrician-Gynaecologist, I’ve been involved in research. This research is mainly focused on miscarriage. This is the focus of my PhD; the causes and factors related to miscarriage in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Other research I have been involved in is sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and breast cancer during my time as a resident with the surgical team.
