Research Themes
Research Summary

My research is focused on improving people's ability to self-manage their health and wellbeing using technology designed to fit in with everyday contexts of daily life, work and play. My research projects focus on diverse conditions such as self-management of physical activity in chronic pain, autism, HIV, and mental health. My background combines HCI, artificial intelligence, programming & physical prototyping, and mixed methods research.  My work is cross-disciplinary with various contributing disciplines (e.g. technology, design, psychology, behaviour change,  business,  public health, physiotherapy).

I follow a highly collaborative and inter-disciplinary approach to technology design that places end-user participation and evaluation at its core. I am passionate about making technology inclusive and in ethical ways of conducting research with people, especially in sensitive contexts and with heightened vulnerabilities. I think technology can do better and I am passionate about making it so.

Teaching Summary
I am the Module Leader of Future Interfaces, and I contribute to teaching Qualitative Research Methods on Interaction Science. Both are part of the UCL MSc in HCI.
