Greetings and salutations!

Welcome to my research page at Imperial College London. From 2015 to 2017, I completed doctoral work at the Global Digital Health Unit, focusing on methods for evaluation of digital learning in health professions continuing professional development and undergraduate/postgraduate medical education. These courses involved my interests in exploring implementation science of initiatives involving:

  • Software engineering
  • Data science
  • Digital health

This work involved the study of software development, cost analysis and evaluation of online learning including asynchronous/synchronous eLearning, blended learning and MOOCs. 

For information on my current research, please visit the Centre for Health Technology website.
