He has published over 140 papers - over 80 in the past five years alone. Many of his scientific papers he has authored have been published in prestigious international ‘interdisciplinary’ scientific journals (e.g. Hypertension, BMC Medicine, eBioMedicine), very high impact journals (Nature, The Lancet and British Medical Journal) and the best international obstetrics journals (Obstetrics and Gynecology, The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology).
Since 2010, he has been awarded 12 National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) project grants, six as the principle investigator. Their combined worth is five million dollars and they fund his team’s ongoing efforts to make pregnancy safer. One of these was selected by NHMRC as one of the ‘10 best project grants in 2015’.
He has received three NHMRC Achievement Awards (2007, 2012, and 2017). These are highly prestigious, given to those with the highest ranked applications in Australia for major research grants. Only around 20 are awarded every year.
One of his proudest achievements is his record of mentorship – training academics of the future, then guiding them through their first steps in their careers. He and his team has arguably trained the most obstetricians undertaking PhD in Australia. Many have gone on to successful academic careers. He also has a strong role in mentoring highly talented scientists.
