Areas of expertise I am currently carrying out a randomised controlled trial of community based resuscitation for newborns who do not breathe at birth in association with the Perinatal Care Programme, Bangladesh. (Funded by Saving Newborn Lives/ the Gates Foundation).

My research interests focus on the longer term outcomes of children following perinatal adversity. I maintain research links with groups in South Asia working in maternal and child health and I continue to develop my interests in global health and development. I am the convenor of the International Child Health Specialist Group of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
