My research topic examined social isolation in care settings such as nursing homes, and whether technology could help reduces levels of lonliness and social isolation among residents of these care settings.
My PhD was funded through a scholarship co-funded by Intel and the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology.
Following that, I spent 4 years as a IT Research Fellow in the HRB Centre for Primary Care Research. I designed and developed the software for a number of projects including examining prescribing patterns in General Practice, documenting unintentional discontinuation of medication following hospital discharge and developing the data transfer software for the Irish Primary Care Research Network (IPCRN). In 2016, I also took over the IT managment of the IPCRN.
The main output from my work at this time was papers, though I also supervised a Masters and PhD student as well. You can click on the research tab above where I'll have a post for each of the papers I worked on, or you can go to my Google Scholar Profile for details on citations and related papers.
