Bachelor in Medicine, PhD in medicine

Research | Current

My research interests are in the area of reproductive biology with major focus on (1) placental development and the role of placental extracellular vesicles in normal and pathological pregnancies. (2) The role of micronutrients in placental extracellular vesicles and maternal vascular response. (3) the association of palcental EVs and gynaecological cancers

Areas of expertise

Complications of pregnancy

gynaecological cancers
