My current R&D interests focus around the use of e-learning and social media by diverse global health stakeholders, and development of an artificial intelligence-based knowledge platform to support integrated approaches to sustainable development (lateral search/digital escapology). Previous roles have been with with the World Health Organization, the UN Joint Programme on AIDS, and as co-founder of two nongovernmental organizations.

I have also been Scientific Editor of two popular scientific journals: the British Journal of Haematology and the European Journal of Cancer. I obtained my PhD through research at the University of Wales College of Medicine, studying the molecular mechanisms underlying prostate and breast cancer.
