I am a Registered Nurse and Midwife, having previously worked as a Research Midwife at the Lyell McEwin Hospital for the Robinson Research Institute, University of Adelaide.
Projects have included the STOP Study (Screening tests to predict poor outcomes in pregnancy), and the Health-e Baby Study. I am currently assisting Prof Gus Dekker with recruitment and data collection for the LEAP Study with the University of Sydney.

My PhD is a follow on from my Master of Philosophy project called the Health-e Baby Study, where our team developed and trialed a pregnancy app to evaluate it's use in a disadvantaged population.

PhD subject: 'Strategies for effective antenatal education for pregnant women living in disadvantaged circumstances"
