Professor Michael Davies (MPH, PhD), is an epidemiologist located within the Robinson Institute at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. He also co-directs the Lifecourse and Intergenerational Health Research Group.
His research focuses on the social and biological pathways to health at different points in the life course, commencing with the question of how periconceptional and pregnancy related factors alter our health trajectories. As part of this research program, his is interested in fertility decision making and related technologies, including questions related to the safety and effectiveness of treatments for infertility. In 2012 he published a major study on the risk of birth defects after infertility treatment that was, for the first time, able to identify both patient and specific treatment factors related to these important outcomes. This was followed in 2014 with a comprehensive analysis of perinatal outcomes across all infertility treatment modalities. He also leads both the Lucina birth cohort study on the aetiology and health consequences of PCOS, and the South Australian Birth Cohort, which is a whole of population data linkage study of fertility and population health.
