A team of clinicians, academic clinicians, and non-clinical academics doing great things together.

Our interests include crowd-sourcing patient-level data; surgical trials in low resource settings; mobile data collection platforms and “wearables”; automated data processing and display; natural language processing/sentiment analysis; decision modelling; Bayesian statistics; administrative data analysis; and patient reported outcomes.
