What areas of science / art are you interested in?

I am a medical doctor, doing a PhD at the Innovation Design Engineering department at the RCA.
I am looking at ways in which digital design can allow the patient narrative to be heard, and what impact this has on the clinical conversation and, ultimately, clinical outcomes.
I am interested in both the biomedical aspects of the patient narrative, as well as the existential.
Also interested in Disruptive Marketing Innovation – i.e. ways to shift the balance of power back towards the patient and away from the healthcare establishments / authorities

Anything else...

Would really like to meet coders / developers. Have a couple of prototype designs and algorithms ready.
