Hi, I’m Gyles, AKA Dr-Hyphen.
I was born and raised in Tower Hamlets, East London and graudated from Bart’s & the London School of Medicine & Dentistry in 2011. After three years working as a Doctor, I took the leap in to IT and now work as a Clinical User Experience (UX) Specialist. UX stands for User eXperience involves understanding how people intereact with the anything that has been designed. Since I have a clinical background, I specialise in optimising the usability, accessibilty and pleasure of healthcare technology and services.
I use my training and experiences as a doctor as well as technical skills to design or improvement to websites, mobile applications and software.
As I have left Medicine and now successfully work in another profession, I provide career coaching for clinicians who are thinking about leaving medicine or a career in IT.
A lover of all forms of creativity, I enjoy playing my 5 string electric acoustic violin, drawing portraits, and cooking. I also enjoy going to the cinema and playing computer games.
