My Research

Participation in research not is not only stimulating and rewarding, but it also helps me improve my clinical practice.  Doctors who actively participate in research generally stay up to date with the medical literature, and are also generally more skilled at critically evaluating other people’s research, and assessing it’s potential for use in clinical practice.


Currently I am involved in a number of research projects in the following areas:

  • Multiple Pregnancy
  • Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia (NAIT)
  • Immunisations in pregnancy
  • Breast Feeding

My previously published research is listed below.  I also speak regularly at local, and national meetings.
