Researcher biography

Ingrid Rowlands' research is broadly focused on women's reproductive health, with a particular interest in adverse events and diseases including miscarriage, infertility, endometriosis and gynaecological cancer. Dr Rowlands' current program of work is generating new knowledge on the causes and consequences of endometriosis using national, longitudinal datasets.

Previously, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute on a national, Australian study of women with uterine cancer, focusing on women's quality of life following treatment.

Her doctoral work examined women's adjustment to miscarriage using data from more than 14,000 young women participating in the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health.
