  • Hi Sulaiman, it would depend on what topics you are interested in and what you are looking to do after your PhD - can you give us some more information?
    • Hi Chris,

      I am interested in areas related to mobile technology for promoting health services delivery in remote areas. I want to make this an area of research where I will be conducting several (independent) studies in order to inform government decision. Nigeria is a country with the largest portion of its population living in rural areas, where there little or no availability of healthcare services. I am looking at reducing the cost of travel and energy exhausted in the process of conveying a patient to hospitals in urban areas.
