Current research

In an evolving health care environment, my research explores multidisciplinary collaboration with a unique focus on patients and their health networks. Our research findings have provided new insights to the development of a more patient responsive multidisciplinary model, offering valuable guidance to health practitioners and health care policy makers. My research interests include addressing the gaps in health care delivery, extending the roles of pharmacists, and exploring patients’ health networks to better inform health care interventions.

Your Otago Experience

It was a privilege to complete my BPharm degree with the School of Pharmacy at Otago University. Dunedin is a perfect student destination with a vibrant social and cultural scene. I thoroughly enjoyed the student lifestyle and have many wonderful memories. The Pharmacy Academic team were inspiring leaders, who took the time to share their passion and guide us forward on our career paths. The summer research program was a valuable experience which opened the door to new opportunities and provided me with the fundamental building blocks to expand my professional development. Thank you to the Otago School of Pharmacy for their ongoing support and contribution to our profession.
