The whole is much more (complex) than the sum of its parts
Complex systems are all around us. As technology becomes a major player in our daily life, it allows us to do more, but it also complicates our decision making. Many people find this disturbing and confusing, but I enjoy this maze and look forward to the challenge of making complex systems more efficient and user friendly.
I am a research scientist, human factors engineer and system analyst. I am studying the human capabilities and how to implement this knowledge to the design of systems and processes, making them easier and more efficient to operate. I also have extensive background in product management, business development and as executive manager.
As an Associate Professor at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev I work with my students on varied studies that focus on how clinicians make decisions and interact with technology in the healthcare complex working environment. I am teaching courses on decision making, human factors and patient safety. I also apply my knowledge and experience to the design of products and services.
My Mission: To gain knowledge on the ways clinicians operate in the complex healthcare working environment, and provide insights that will improve healthcare processes, devices, and facilities, contributing to improved patient safety
