I am the nominated Principal Investigator for the Canadian Birth Place Study, a national, CIHR-funded study that examines the attitudes and experiences of Canadian maternity care providers related to planned home birth. Findings from the study may inform regulatory discourse, alternative funding structures, and curriculum modifications related to maternity services across birth settings.
I am currently working to develop the first in a series of clinical studies to evaluate methods of fetal health surveillance. Specifically, these studies will compare auscultative methods to electronic monitoring methods (antepartum and intrapartum) with the goal of improving screening test validity.
