Personal profile

Biography

I'm originally from the UK, where I studied for my PhD in Digital Civics at Open Lab, Newcastle University. My PhD invovled working closely with schools and community heritage groups, designing technology which engaged with and helped them share their values of place.

In my spare time I love playing games, practicing photography, watching movies and being a general nerd.

Research interests

I'm a Human-Computer Interaction researcher and software engineer with a passion for co-developing mobile technologies within communities and schools. Using participatory design, I engage with stakeholders to produce and deploy mobile applications and full-stack web technologies which aim to empower them as citizens.

This has included giving communities approachable platforms for sharing their local knowledge and civic values, supporting NHS patients in self-monitoring their skin conditions, and helping Red Cross volunteers voice their concerns about the future of their institution.
