Research description

My research primarily concerns factors surrounding pregnancy, and its potential to influence maternal and offspring health.

The aim of my doctoral project is to determine the benefits and harms of antiepileptic drug use during pregnancy, using registry-based pharmacoepidemiological surveillance and causal modelling. I am also involved in projects aiming to determine the role of cesarean section in maternal and offspring health.
