I'm the Group Head for Global Health Informatics at the Centre for Tropical Medicine at the University of Oxford.

I research the use of Open Source Electronic Health Records (EHR) software, online learning and mobile technology to improve healthcare delivery in low-resource settings.

Our current projects include:

  • Kenyan EHR Survey: We are conducting a survey of EHR systems in use in Kenya
  • Open Source Health IT Simulation: We are conducting a simulation of Health IT infrastructure using Open Source Systems and Cloud Servers
  • HELP: The Health Emergency Learning Platform is a mobile game for training healthcare professionals to deal with emergencies.

In my spare time, I moderate the Health Informatics Forum, an online community of 8,000 health informatics professionals.
