Ladies Inc. Industry Profile
I recently completed a Master of Science in Computer Science (First Class Honours) and am about to start my PhD at the University of Waikato. I also hold a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics (First Class Honours) from the University of Auckland.
I have previously worked as a mathematics lecturer and as the financial manager for a busy medical practice. My experience working in the health sector has given me a special interest in applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to solving medical problems. This is a field that AI can make a major positive impact in.
The health sector will face major challenges in the coming decades as it grapples with an ageing population, key worker shortages and increasingly complex medical technology, while facing increased public expectations and financial constraints.
AI can potentially provide new ways of doing things, or doing what the health sector already does better, faster and cheaper. I am also the mother of twin four-year-old boys. My passion for research and learning has brought me to tertiary education after a decade in the workforce. I believe we can never stop learning or pushing past our perceived limitations.
My PhD Journey
I started my PhD journey at the University of Waikato, 1st Sep 2018, with University of Waikato Doctoral scholarship for 3 years.
