  • Patrick Pang is an academic in the School of Computing and Information Systems at the Melbourne School of Engineering of the University of Melbourne, in where he works on teaching and research in IT and digital health, as well as improving the employability of students and managing internship programs.

    His research areas cover consumer health informatics, health information needs, information-seeking behaviour and information visualisation. He believes that the right information delivered by the right technology at the right time can change how people manage their well-being. His current work uses consumer-generated data to identify people's information needs and to help them make informed decisions.

    Apart from research, he has been teaching a range of subjects in the University, including web development, data warehousing, business analytics and participatory health. He also supervises projects of Master students in both IT and Health specialisations. As part of his role as the internship coordinator, he runs a number of lectures and workshops to improve the employability of IT students.
