My PhD is focused on eHealth mediated services and care for people with epilepsy.

'eHealth' (Electronic Health) involves the integration of information and all knowledge sources involved in the delivery of healthcare via information technology based systems.

Taking an anthropological approach, my research aims to elucidate the barriers and facilitators associated with eHealth adoption for epilepsy care. I hope to gain an understanding of the role that technology can play in the patient care of people with epilepsy.

The outcome of my project seeks to inform the conditions for optimum adoption of technological supports. This knowledge is then intended to be used as a basis for integration of eHealth supports for epilepsy patient care.
