PhD title: Enhanced Humans, Robotics and the Future of Work

My research interests centre around the impacts that an aging population and increases in chronic diseases and co-morbidities have on the healthcare system, and how the system is responding to the challenges that these impacts bring. The topic of my PhD is looking at how automation, artificial intelligence, big data, and human enhancements can change the way in which healthcare is delivered and accessed, and what systemic barriers exist to these changes becoming a reality.
