I have a special interest in studying and reducing severe maternal morbidity. My research focuses on investigating the association between obstetrical practice (mode of delivery) and pregnancy characteristic (mode of conception, twin pregnancy, macrosomia) and maternal morbidity.

Research interests

  • Maternal morbidity
  • Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
