Personal profile


Dorota is Head of the Biostatistics and Research Design Unit, at the Women and Infants Research Foundation; adjunct Professor at the Division of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, The University of Western Australia (UWA). After completing her PhD she worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow/Statistical Epidemiologist in the Department of Endocrinology, UWA (1998–1999), and as a Research Scientist in the Department of Biostatistics at the MD Anderson Cancer Centre, the University of Texas (2000–2001).

Since joining the Women and Infants Research Foundation in 2001 she has been responsible for the design, conduct and analysis of randomised clinical trials and observational studies conducted at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH), the main tertiary obstetric hospital in Western Australia, and she has supervised and conducted a large number of research studies in close collaboration with clinicians and scientists in the areas of obstetrics and neonatology.

Dorota’s research interests involve the application of biostatistical techniques to research in clinical medicine with complex epidemiological models that explore associations between patient phenotypes and health outcomes encompassing the development of prognostic models for prediction of health outcomes, design and conduct of randomised clinical trials in reproductive health, evaluations of models of maternity care, and decision analytic methodologies designed to evaluate new interventions via outcomes simulation. Dorota’s most significant contributions have been in research dedicated to the prevention of preterm birth, models of maternity care, and Raine cohort studies.

Dorota is a member of the Australian Preterm Birth Prevention Alliance Steering Committee and the chief biostatistician for the WA Preterm Birth Prevention Initiative.
