Projects per year
I qualified from Edinburgh University and pursued a career in Paedatrics & Child Health with positions in Scotland and New Zealand. More recently, I have also worked in a research capacity within the Vaccine Trials Group, Perth, Western Australia. I completed my postgraduate paediatric training in Tayside in 2012 and have worked as a consultant in paediatrics since then. I have a clinical interest in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes and am an active member of the national clinical networks for each sub-specialty. I am also an NRS career research fellow, having been successfully appointed in 2016.
My main research interest is in health informatics. Specifically, how best to use routinely collected clinical data to inform best practice. This includes:
- Development, implementation and evaluation of a clinical decision support system within SCI-Diabetes - Scotland's national electronic health record for diabetes.
- Evaluation of My Diabetes My Way - an electronic patient health record for people with diabetes.
- Development of artificial intelligence powered decision support
- Development of "virtual coaching" for people with chronic conditions
I am an active member of the Child Health undergraduate teaching committee and have regular undergraduate and postgraduate teaching commitments throughout the academic year. I have lead responsibility for the child health component of the Systems in Practice phase of the undergraduate curriculum.
