With a strong focus on nursing leadership, he spearheads initiatives to enhance the adoption of clinical information systems and technologies, offering valuable guidance on learning, decision support, clinical workflows, and optimising clinical systems for multidisciplinary care providers.

His expertise in this area has attracted considerable attention, leading him to pursue a PhD exploring the design and deployment considerations for the use of Virtual Reality (VR) in clinical education. His ground-breaking research has generated both local and international interest.
