I am an emergency medicine doctor, clinician software developer and 2017 Saltire Fellow at the Digital Health and Care Institute, Scotland. I graduated from the University of Edinburgh Medical School in 2013 and completed Foundation Training at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London.
While working as a junior doctor on the Robotic Urology team at Guy’s Hospital, I was bitten by the “health tech bug”, inspiring me to complete a 5 month software development course at Maker’s Academy, London while working A&E shifts at the weekends.
I have developed software and apps for various medical uses including a clinical decision pathway and data collection tool for the Academic Cardiology team at the University of Edinburgh, available at https://highsteacs.com. Also, I was on the event organisation team for the successful Product Forge Future Health Hackathon in January 2017. I also have experience using the programming language Python for Data Science, Analysis and Machine Learning.
I am the 2017 Saltire Fellow at the Digital Health and Care Institute, a Scottish Government innovation centre tasked with making Scotland a leader in Digital Health. The programme started with a 2 month learning journey in Boston and Silicon Valley and I am taking this opportunity to deepen my understanding of the Digital Health market from a new perspective.
Ultimately I am looking for business opportunities to create products and solutions that improve the health of people around the world, leveraging my network and breadth of experience in healthcare, technology, entrepreneurship and leadership.
