Her interest in clinical outcomes and the evidence for medicine and its application lead her to be the inaugural coordinator of the Australian and New Zealand Neonatal Network. After establishing this unique collaboration her research intereste include audit and feedback, and what makes a clinical network successful. Her doctoral study is in perinatal epidemiology.
