Francesca’s background is in maternal and child health epidemiology. Her expertise is in the analysis of complex and administrative data; data linkage; and the evaluation of health care interventions. Her academic work focussed on access to and quality of reproductive and maternity services in West Africa. Most recently, she worked as a Senior Research Fellow at the UCL Institute of Child Health, on the evaluation of the Family Nurse Partnership in England using linked administrative data from the NHS, Department for Education, and children’s social care. 

Following a degree in Human Sciences and MSc in Demography and Health, Francesca completed a PhD on the unmet need for caesarean sections at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
