Pregnancy is a profound cardiovascular and metabolic challenge for women. My research has focused upon the mechanisms regulating these changes specifically in very small blood vessels. I am also very interested in environmental and metabolic mechanisms which disrupt the vascular adaption to pregnancy and may ultimately contribute to an adverse pregnancy outcome.
