I qualified at Guy’s Hospital, London, in 1984, having graduated from Keble College, Oxford, in Experimental Psychology. I trained at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford; Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospital, London, and the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading. I held the posts of Research Fellow (1986-89), Clinical Lecturer (1992-94), and Senior Fellow in Reproductive Medicine (1994-99) in NDOG, before being appointed as Clinical Reader in 1999 and Professor of Reproductive Medicine in 2011. I held the position of Head of Department from 2005 to 2020.

With Jose Villar, I jointly lead the INTERGROWTH-21st Project, a large-scale, multi-centre project involving health institutions in 11 geographically diverse countries around the world that aims to assess fetal and newborn growth under optimal, and various sub-optimal (e.g. exposure to malaria, HIV and malnutrition), conditions.
