Valerie Gay

Hi I am Valerie Gay and I am an IT researcher with 16 years experience in mobile health and I am passionate about improving healthcare delivery, and empowering patients and communities, using IT and mobile technologies. My research focuses on the use of mobile technology and data analysis to offer better and more personalised advice and care. My current work harnesses data from mobile devices, wearable technology and electronic health records to offer a better and more holistic view on someone’s health, fitness and wellness.  I am a HISA (Health Informatics Society Australia) NSW committee member (elected).

I truly believe in trans-disciplinary teaching and research.  In addition to my telecom teaching, I am coordinating and designing a ‘health innovation studio’ in the biomedical engineering bachelor degree in collaboration with the Business School. I also teach in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation program (Creative Practice and Methods).
