Dr Emily Jefferson joined the University of Dundee 2012 and is the Director of the Health Informatics Centre (HIC) and Senior Research Fellow in Health Informatics.
Emily read Biochemistry at the University of St Andrews before moving to attain a PhD in the more computational field of Bioinformatics at the University of Dundee. After a post-doc in Bioinformatics, Emily left academia to work in the banking sector as a Project Director, managing the delivery and development of multi-million pound software systems to several International Banks. Emily then took a career break to solo cycle from New Zealand to the UK over 1 year.
Emily then chose to return to work in an area she feels passionate about. Emily wishes to combine an understanding of medical research and academia with commercial IT Project Management and Development experience and apply these skills to the field of Health Informatics.
