My interests lie in health and medical systems innovation and research. I retain linkages with key national civilian and military education, research and development organisations and retain an active involvement in a wide variety of projects and initiatives supporting national public health preparedness goals.

My current research effort and interests touch on complexity science, agent based and deterministic modelling, emergent complex adaptive systems phenomena, test and evaluation of systems, policy research, epidemic modelling, exotic and emerging infections, disaster preparedness and response, organisational resilience in health care, development of robust socio-technical systems in health care, and the modelling, simulation and investigation of public health interventions and systems.

Methods that I utilise in my research are:

 - Sociotechnical systems modeling and simulation

 - Hybrid Modeling (Agent Based Modeling, Discrete Event Modeling, System Dynamics)

 - Artificial intelligence and autonomous agents

 - Qualitative and mixed methods

 - Epidemiology

 - Geospatial/GIS based approaches
