Ryan Crichton

South Africa

Lead Developer

Ryan Crichton plays a key role on the Jembi team of developers in designing solutions for specific project challenges and needs. He was one of the first developers to join Jembi at its inception and was recruited whilst completing a BSc Honours degree in computer science at UKZN. He is based at the Jembi office in Durban at the School of Computer Science at the University of Kwazulu-Natal (UKZN).

Ryan has contributed to the extraordinary growth of the organisation. When he isn’t designing, he can be found hacking away at code or reading up on new technologies that Jembi could be utilising.

Ryan is currently doing his Master through the HEAL programme on architecture and reference implementation of an Open Health Information Mediator (OpenHIM), which enables inter-operability in health information exchanges (HIEs), focusing on the health information exchange in Rwanda.
