Research Profile

Dr. Colin Macduff joined GSA School of Design as Senior Research Fellow in August 2016. A nurse and health services researcher by background, Colin has very extensive experience as principal investigator on national evaluation research projects involving both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. Building from a longstanding interest in the application of the expressive arts within healthcare, in recent years Colin has worked closely with design and other disciplines to address the pressing challenge of healthcare associated infections (HAIs).
Between 2011-2013 Colin led the AHRC/SFC funded Visualising the Invisible (Visinvis: http://visinvis.org ) research study which explored healthcare workers perceptions of pathogens and the application of dynamic visualisation approaches to helpmore...
