My research spans many areas ranging from Artificial intelligence, through Medical Informatics to Technology & Strategy. The goal of my research has always been to enable the outcome to be of practical and theoretical value. The projects spanning the last twenty years have resulted in a set of publications the majority of which can be found and here:
