Overview

Claudia joined City University as a PhD student in October 2013.

Claudia has been a practising midwife (RM) in Austria for almost 20 years. She was awarded her MA Midwifery Practice from Thames Valley University in 2005, which enabled her to take the latest midwifery research to Austria. As such, she has been teaching research knowledge and skills in midwifery education and has been involved in midwifery education curriculum development. She is also an author and member of the editorial staff of the Austrian Midwifery Journal from 2002-12.
