During her PhD, she was the lead investigator on the PIMS (Paediatric Intravenous Maintenance Solution) study: a large, randomised controlled trial comparing isotonic and hypotonic fluids for maintenance hydration in children. The study findings have led to practice change, both in Australia and internationally.
