I completed my medical training at Nottingham University in the UK and I am currently a Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Health Informatics at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and a Fellow of the Australasian College of Health Informatics.
Before joining the University of Auckland I worked for the UK NHS (Gen Med, Gen Surg, Orthopaedics, Urology, Health Care of the Elderly, Endocrinology), Capital Coast Health (Orthopaedics, Plastic Surgery), Cambridge University (Anatomy Demonstrator and Tutor at Trinity College) and as a Lecturer in Health Informatics at the University of Otago.
My research interests are Medical e-Learning, Web 2.0, Electronic Health Records Standards and Mobile Computing. I am co-author of the RSM Press book ‘The Doctor’s PDA and Smartphone Handbook’.
I’m the Chair of the IMIA Social Media Working Group. I’m a peer reviewer for the Journal of Internet Medical Research and I am the Associate Editor of the Journal of Health Informatics in Developing Countries.
I write about Health Informatics on the Health Informatics Blog, and I have set up a community for Health Informatics professionals at the Health Informatics Forum.
