Welcome to my bio page! I'm Abraham, a DPhil candidate in Human-Centered Computing at the University of Oxford, supervised by Professor Max Van Kleek. My research passion bridges healthcare and technology, focusing on optimizing health data management and utilization. With an academic foundation in Translational Biomedical Research (MPhil, University of Cambridge) and Medicine and Surgery (MBBS, University of London), and experience as a junior doctor, I bring a comprehensive perspective to my work.

My doctoral thesis, "Plurality in Design: A Critical Examination of Diversity and Complexity in Human-Centered Health Data Management Systems," delves into the intricate aspects of health data management, emphasizing ownership, empowerment, and trust. This work aligns with my commitment to enhance healthcare through advanced technology and human-centered design principles.

In my research, I concentrate on the responsible use of health data, governance, and stakeholder engagement, aiming to impact both public initiatives and businesses positively. I'm enthusiastic about collaborating within Oxford's HCC community to contribute towards a progressive and empathetic healthcare future.
