Lucy is an elected academic representative on council who works as nursing lecturer in the Bachelor of Nursing program at Southern Cross University.  

Lucy has strong clinical background having worked as an intensive care nurse for the past 20 years, completing a Masters of Advanced Practice specialising in critical care in 2008.  

Lucy is an early career researcher in the field of artificial intelligence in healthcare. Her PhD pursuits focus on exploring healthcare professionals’ perceptions of artificial intelligence (AI) in the delivery of care. This work has seen the development and validation of a tool that measures perception and has been used in over 11 counties. As both clinician and educator, Lucy has observed the growing use of technology impacting the journey of the patient, the student and the healthcare workforce and so she has a particular research interest on the development and application of AI in healthcare, the social dimensions of implementation, and the education that is required to prepare the healthcare workforce.
