What is your research about and what do you hope to achieve?

My research is investigating the neurovasculature (blood vessels within the brain) in preterm babies diagnosed with Fetal Growth Restriction (FGR) during pregnancy. I am particularly interested in the neurological outcomes which these babies may be predisposed to as a result of pregnancy complications.
