Reem is looking into finding new ways of improving healthcare delivery during natural and man-made disasters. Her research on cross-agency collaboration and information exchange addresses the communication challenges between clinical and emergency management personnel during disasters, and how these two groups can make effective use of the available e-health tools that are currently revolutionizing mainstream healthcare. Her research also aims at developing a curriculum framework that could be standardized for enhancing communication during disasters.
Her work experience includes the Shell Company of the Sudan, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). She has worked in several regions affected by armed conflicts and is very much interested into using her technical background in impacting healthcare during disastrous situations.
Reem is a published author and in 2016 received the award for Best Student Scientific Paper at the Health Informatics New Zealand Conference (HINZ 2016).
Reem is available for work placements mid 2019.
