‘’My training and research so far have been primarily in the field of fertility, early pregnancy embryo-uterine interactions and menopause. I envision myself developing a practice in reproductive endocrinology and subfertility focussing on assisted conception, reproductive endocrinology, and post-reproductive health. I also hope to continue conducting research in these areas especially in relation to premature menopause and PCOS. As a teacher and trainer, I hope to be involved in future development of training opportunities and exchange programmes for the benefit of those interested in pursuing a career in subfertility treatment and reproductive endocrinology’’
