Professor Peter Fleming


My clinical practice is in the fields of newborn intensive care, developmental assessment and investigation and care of children with sleep-related disorders, particularly involving breathing. My research is in the areas of developmental physiology, mother/baby interactions (particularly during sleep) and large scale studies of factors contributing to sudden death in infants. I also have a particular clinical and research interest in the provision of bereavement care to parents after the death of a baby or child.
