My research interest is in perinatal epidemiology, including pregnancy complications, fetal and neonatal outcomes and maternal morbidity. My recent and current research projects have used epidemiological methods to examine the risk factors and consequences of early- and late-onset preeclampsia on fetal and infant outcomes, and trends in maternal mortality in Canada. Other areas of research interest include the effects of older maternal age on pregnancy outcomes, assisted reproduction, preterm birth, and neonatal mortality and morbidity. I am particularly interested in using perinatal databases to address problem of health status and health care.
My goal is to advance the scientific knowledge-base related to the etiology of pregnancy complications, preterm birth, and severe maternal morbidity, and to improve maternal and child health in British Columbia, Canada and elsewhere.
Great Supervisor Week Mentions
In honour of @UBCGradSchool #GreatSupervisor Appreciation Week, I'm lucky to have Dr. Lisonkova and Dr. Ting provide absolute support and invaluable guidance during my #UBC MSc on preterm birth in Canada. The post-defense smiles say it all! @joseph_ting2010 @ubcOBGYN @UBCmedicine
