Scientific summary

My research focuses on assessing the impact of the organization of care on the health and development of babies born very preterm (<32 weeks of gestational age) in France and other European countries and on the effects of the restructuring of obstetric and pediatric health services on access to care for pregnant women and newborns. I also lead a project to develop perinatal health surveillance for the evaluation of health systems and policy in Europe. My third research interest is the management and consequences of fetal growth restriction for preterm and term births.
