Thesis title: Developing and Evaluating Data visualization systems for the delivery of HIV care in the Sub-Saharan African Context
Dave is an ESPRC funded Ph.D. student working on the i-sense programme led by Professor Rachael Mckendry and he is supervised by Dr Ed Manley at CASA. Dave joined I-sense on an exploratory project developing digital dashboards for the Africa Health research institute to allow them to track the progress of studies and highlight key indicators. In my research, I use research from data visualisation literature to develop new data visualisation to aid decision making for the delivery of HIV care in South Africa I focus primarily on developing solutions for people who are need to use data make decisions in their job but may not have a high level of data literacy, working with them and using data visualisations that responds to the way our brains perceive the visual environment rather then learned knowledge. The aims of this research hope to produce output visualisation systems for i-sense apps and tests that allow users to easily track disease trends.
