About me

I am the Chief Medical Informatics Officer, and the head of Medical Informatics Group at Cambio Healthcare Systems with overall responsibility in health informatics. My current focus is the research and development of clinical decision support and knowledge management using semantic EHR technologies such as openEHR archetypes. I am interested in scalable decisions support systems that are generic, and agnostic to natural languages and technical platforms. At LIME, I supervise two PhD students and master studies in their thesis projects. 

At HIC, the Health Informatics Centre, I am an associated senior researcher.
