Mr Luke Jonathan Boyle
BSc, MSc (First Class Honours)
Orignally I studied Bioinformatics, looking at how gene expression can change in response to the environment. Currently I collaborate with Statisticians and Medical Professionals to investigate how surgical outcomes differ across New Zealand. I also research how to provide timely, accuracte information to surgeons and patients as they make decisions about their care through the use of statistical models. I'm passionate about providing tools and information to increase the standard of care for patients in New Zealand.
I also work as a Data Scientist for Orion Health and am involved in research projects for Precision Driven Health.

I am currently working on my PhD researching how to predict and understand outcomes from surgery in New Zealand using large administrative databases
