    Personal profile

    Research Interests

     

    My main research focus is in the area of human‐computer interaction (HCI) – that is, the study and subsequent improvement of human interaction with technology and the design, development and evaluation of interactive technologies. My Ph.D. research has been focused on the design, development and evaluation of mobile assistive technologies for special needs user such as older adults with visual impairments - an area to which I have contributed practically‐validated guidelines.

    I have extensive experience of adopting user-centred, participatory design approaches for the design and development of mobile assistive healthcare technologies, and of both qualitative and quantitative approaches to technology design and evaluation (including the use of observational and experimental designs).

    I am interested in applying gamified interventions to promote healthy eating behaviours and have co-developed the 'Vegetable Maths Masters' app for children and teachers to support healthy eating behaviour. The majority of my research is multi-disciplinary in nature, representing collaborations across many different domains including psychology, ophthalmology, and health informatics.
