I am a human factors & implementation science researcher with an area of interest in healthcare delivery sciences and health-related technologies. Most of my work applies social science methods to explore issues related to the implementation and adoption of health technologies as well as the planning, organization, and structuring of healthcare delivery services.
Main topics of interest:
Implementation-informed Service Design
Evaluation of Implementation
Most of my work involves using qualitative methods to study primary and secondary care pathways, where the aim has been to understand the real-world barriers and drivers of care delivery with regards to better supporting the introduction of new innovations into everyday clinical practice. This involves identifying the patterns of invisible work and examining social structures that inform the way clinical work is conducted.
Recently, my research has focused on the development and introduction of new diagnostic tools to support early-cancer detection. I currently conduct implementation studies to examine the challenges of integrating these devices into different healthcare settings.
