Research profile and key clinical specialties

I am a GP and health informatician. I lead research to develop and evaluate digital interventions that use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to solve important problems in, and improve the delivery of, health care. Examples of my current projects include:

Two key publications
