  • Biography/ Background

     

    I am an epidemiologist, recognised internationally for my work identifying interventions to improve maternal and newborn health in low and middle income countries. I have published 100 peer-reviewed papers, 8 book chapters and multiple research/technical reports. My research has contributed significantly to global maternity policy and practice. The WHO technical report I co-authored on essential interventions led to the development of the WHO guideline “Essential Interventions, Commodities and Guidelines for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health”; while another commissioned review led to the development of the WHO Guideline “Managing possible serious bacterial infection in young infants when referral is not feasible”. 

    I have made sustained contributions to the Cochrane Collaboration, as an author, a referee and trainer. I am a current Feedback Editor for the Acute Respiratory Infections Group. In 2011, I was awarded the prestigious international Kenneth Warren Prize from the Cochrane Collaboration. In 2016 I received the University of Adelaide’s Women’s Excellence in Research Award and in 2017 the Ecexutive Dean Award for Research (Early Career Category). 

    My expertise in evidence synthesis has also been recognised through invited membership of three separate Lancet Intervention Review Groups (Newborn, Nutrition, Diarrhoea and Pneumonia) and subsequent publications. In addition, I have been appointed as a Technical Advisor to the WHO on three occasions, to advise on use of task shifting strategies to optimise the delivery of key maternal and newborn interventions in under-resourced settings; and to aid in strengthening the process and methods for retrieval, synthesis and assessment of evidence on complex interventions.

    I am a Section Editor of BMC Reproductive Health (Adolescent Health), and BMC Public Health (Global Health); and Academic Editor of International Health and BMC Systematic Reviews.
