I am PhD candidate in the Department of General Practice at the University of Melbourne, funded through the most excellent Young and Well Cooperative Centre.

My area of interest is in how emerging technology can be designed and used to improve the health and wellbeing of young people. I also have a particular interest in participatory design.

My PhD topic is investigating the implementation of a health screening app for young people in primary care, including how it might increase patient-centred care.
