My clinical specialty is acute stroke, while my research area lies in the innovative field of digital health and clinical informatics. My PhD research focuses on the implementation and evaluation of an Electronic Medical Record enhancement in acute stroke care and the effect of digital innovations on interprofessional practice. I collaborate with the Queensland Digital Health Centre (QDHeC) as a research assistant and am a Digital Health CRC emerging leader and scholarship recipient. I aspire to further influence the digital health landscape by leveraging implementation science to facilitate integration of digital technologies into clinical practice and advancing digital workforce capability.
