Personal profile

Biography

I am a cross-disciplinary digital health researcher at the intersection of healthcare and computer science. My expertise lies in Human Computer Interaction and participatory approaches towards engaging health communities in the design of digital technologies and services to support their needs. I have a particular interest in Parkinson's, mental health and supporting speech and language therapy outcomes. 

My more recent work has been exploring the role of new and emerging commercial technologies in supporting the self monitoring and mangement of chronic health conditions (e.g. smart speakers, IoT devices, online and mobile mental health services), as well as the use of smartphone sensing for detecting mental health behaviours. 

I am currently open to PhD students
