I am aiming to determine the association between antenatal and birth factors and the risk of adverse health outcomes in the mother and offspring at 8-10 years after pregnancy/gestation. These adverse health outcomes include obesity, cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and impaired microvascular function.

I am currently working on my PhD project, which is a follow-up of the SCOPE study. SCOPE was an international pregnancy study that collected extensive maternal, paternal and infant data both during pregnancy and at birth. I am particularly interested in how this data associates with maternal and offspring cardiovascular and metabolic health 8-10 years after the pregnancy.
