My doctoral research topic examines how social media influences food decisions for young adults (18-25 years) in New Zealand. Under the domain of population health informatics, this is a mixed methods study, involving qualitative interviews, analysis, survey questionnaire development and analysis of the quantitative data using SPSS.
I am skilled in understanding and handling health information relating to social media in the health context, as well as human physiology and genetics with pre and post-drug development process cycles. I have worked as a research coordinator, drug safety subject matter expert and a regulatory medical writer. A foundation of my expertise is active involvement in projects working with different stakeholder needs to advance patient care outcomes. I am excited to be able to translate my digital healthcare solution design expertise to the industry.
