“While studying for my BCom, I was working part-time in the health industry, and after completing this degree I started working full time in a local district health board."
My most cherished experience at the Business School was being the tutor for
Infosys 737. I had taken the course previously and now I was very happy to
share my learning and help students on their journey.”
“I come from a Pacific/Indian background, where Type 2 diabetes is a very common preventative disease in the community. So I decided to combine both my passions for health and information systems. This led to the publication of a conference paper on
my Masters thesis topic: ‘Design and Implementation of Sustainable Health Education Reversion and Prevention using Persuasion and Affiliation’, for which I received the Susan Byrne Cup for best Masters thesis of 2018."
