Dave is an ESPRC funded PhD student  working on the i-sense programme led by Professor Rachael Mckendry and he is supervised by Dr Ed Manley at CASA. i-sense aims to identify outbreaks of infectious disease much earlier than ever before using technology to develop early warning systems, helping patients gain faster access to care and protecting populations. In my research, I use research from data visualisation literature to develop new data visualisation to aid decision making for the delivery of HIV care. I focus primarily on developing solutions for people who are need to use data make decisions in their job but may not have a high level of data literacy, working with them and using data visualisations that responds to the way our brains perceive the visual environment rather then learned knowledge.
