DPhil Candidate

My DPhil project looks at decision making among clinicians by understanding how they gather information before making decisions about patient cases. I aim to look at how information is pushed and pulled by clinicians when it comes to aligning their mental models and understanding of a patient's condition. Also of interest here are the ways that clinicians trust each other and value social (eg advice from colleagues) vs non-social (eg visual signs from the patient) cues when coming to decisions. This is especially important given that these decisions can be both time-critical and safety-critical. It is hoped that this research can also inform how we gather social and non-social information for decisions outside of healthcare. This project is supervised by Nick Yeung from the ACC Lab and Helen Higham from the OxSTAR Centre based at John Radcliffe Hospital.
