    Career Summary

    My main research is to employ a transdisciplinary approach to study the causes and consequences of adverse pregnancy outcomes and their long-term consequences through both population-based and hospital-based studies. The population-based studies aim to understand the determinants of perinatal outcomes at the population-level, with a focus on the differentials between Canadian aboriginal and non-aboriginal women. The hospital-based studies aim to address the biological determinants and causal pathways of adverse pregnancy outcomes and their long-term consequences.

    Major current research projects are:

    • Community Characteristics and Birth Outcomes Among Canadian Aboriginal Women, funded by the Institute of Aboriginal Peoples Health, Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR);
    • Oxidative Stress, Fetal Growth and Programming of the Metabolic Syndrome, funded by the Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes, CIHR;
    • Nutritional, Environmental, and Genetic Factors in Modulating Oxidative Stress and Outcomes for the Mother (Preeclampsia) and Baby (Fetal Growth), funded through a CIHR Team Grant - MIROS (Maternal and Infant Research on Oxidative Stress).
