B.Pharm, - University of Uyo, Uyo, Nigeria, 2010

Research Areas:

My interest lies in exploring ways through which health technology may be optimized for improved patient outcomes. I have conducted preliminary studies revolving around the implementation of Electronic Health Records in Sub-Saharan Africa. I intend to pursue this further in order to determine how the adoption of relevant technologies might be improved both in Africa and the United States. Also interesting to me is the utilization of customized applications for prompt adverse event reporting.
