Hi Everyone,

This thread is to introduce yourself on the site and to let people know about your background.

I'm a medical doctor by training and a Health Informatics researcher and consultant based in Oxfordshire in the UK. I'm currently working with the University of Oxford on a health informatics research project based in Kenya and running the MOOC on this website.

I spent the previous 7 years in New Zealand as a Lecturer in Health Informatics at the University of Otago and as a Senior Research Fellow in Health Informatics at the National Institute for Health Innovation at the University of Auckland.
