Personal profile

Public Profile

I am an analyst, computer scientist, and software engineer with a primary research focus in artificial intelligence and integrated health systems. My research explores scalable systems infrastructure to support clinical care and research through the operationalisation of healthcare data and information. I currently hold a dual-position that is partly supported by the Health Analytics Research Collaborative (Health Translation SA) and partly supported by Health Systems Research (SAMHRI and Flinders University). Our team at the Health Analytics Research Collaborative considers the many roles of health system data and provides leadership and exemplar project implementation. Our team at Health Systems Research develops modern and innovative data systems and has been successful in conducting cardiovascular clinical trials at a national scale. Our approaches to service implementation utilise best practices in both analytics and systems. We hope to develop ourselves as core service providers and foster relationships with the health system, academia, industry, and the greater community.
