Over the last 15 years he has led the development of a completely new academic department in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at North Bristol that is now recognised as a major international intrapartum and safety research centre – currently with 49 research team members.

He has expanded a research portfolio, successfully securing almost £4 million research funding in the last decade, leading large multi-centre NIHR portfolio randomised controlled trials (IMOX study – 6285 women) as well as leading national level studies with innovative trial designs – THISTLE study in Scotland and Odon with the Gates Foundation.
