Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I am interested in conducting research into how to apply data science and systems engineering and design methods to improve the safety and quality of health and social care. I am interested in working with prospective PhD students or collaborators on the use of systems approaches, behavioural science, analytics/intelligence and modelling to improve the quality and safety of health and social care.
