I am a clinical pharmacist and The Hospital Research Foundation Mid-Career Research Fellow at Flinders University and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute where I leads the Reproductive and Perinatal Pharmacoepidemiology Research Group. My clinical and research ambitions are to enhance maternal and newborn health outcomes through supporting quality use of medicines and the development and promotion of more efficacious, safer, and personalised pharmacotherapy approaches.

I completed my PhD in Pharmacy/Pharmacoepidemiology in 2012 which focused on evaluating different approaches towards investigating the long-term effects of medication use during pregnancy. My current clinical/research interests include perinatal pharmacoepidemiology, obstetric and neonatal pharmacology, medication safety, and evidence-based medicine.

I am currently involved in a wide variety of studies including:

  • Improving the identification and pharmacological management of lactation insufficiency in mothers of preterm infants
  • Exploring outcomes associated with maternal asthma and the development of strategies for optimising clinical management and related pregnancy outcomes
  • Optimising the management of iron deficiency anaemia in pregnancy
  • Reducing the risk of medication errors in neonatal care
  • Enhancing the role of pharmacists in perinatal pharmacy practice

My team is constantly looking for a high calibre Honours, Masters or PhD student to undertake research related to medication use and women's and newborn health. If you're interested in knowing more, please email me.
