Research Fellow (CLAHRC)
- Honorary (Consultant) Assistant Professor. Division of Primary Care, School of Medicine, University of Nottingham, UK.
I specialise in the study of social shaping of information technologies, with particular interest in digital health interventions. My disciplinary background includes postgraduate degrees in the social and human sciences (Ph.D. 2009), and, undergraduate degrees in information science and technology. Before joining this department, my work chiefly involved the evaluation of UK National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT) interventions in the NHS, in particular, the implementation of the Electronic Prescription Service in community pharmacies. I have also worked on projects that studied patient/public (dis)engagement with government-implemented IT programmes.
My current work, within the CLAHRC team, is to lead the research on factors that influence the adoption of technology-based self-management interventions on chronic diseases, from patient and organisational perspectives.
My other works include being an editorial board member of International Journal of Social Science Studies (IJSSS), and International Journal of Healthcare (IJH), a peer-reviewer for several other journals, and an Honorary (Consultant) Assistant Professor at the Division of Primary Care, School of Medicine, University of Nottingham, UK.
