Dr Sohinee Bhattacharya
The principal aim of the reproductive health epidemiology programme is to study the effects of pregnancy and childbirth on lifelong health of women and their children. Methodologically this programme is centred around the Aberdeen Maternity and Neonatal Databank (AMND) and through record linkage of women and their offspring occurring in this database with other registers collecting routine health related data.
My main research interests include early and late pregnancy loss, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and maternal obesity in pregnancy using statistical analysis of routinely collected linked health data.
Dr Mairead Black
I am a clinical lecturer and research fellow currently conducting a set of linked projects relating to caesarean section as part of a Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship. This programme of work, which will contribute towards attainment of a PhD, involves primary qualitative research, synthesis of qualitative literature, epidemiological research using Scottish data and health services research employing postal questionnaires.
Previous research has involved retrospective cohort studies of pregnancy outcomes relating to stillbirth in previous pregnancy, substance-misuse in pregnancy, induction of labour and operative deliveries performed by midwives.
