Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher and speech and language therapist. My interdisciplinary research interests relate to the areas of human computer interaction, multimodal communication and assistive technology.


I have worked as a Speech and Language Therapist in the NHS (2004-2017) in community and hospital settings. My interests span the areas of augmentative and alternative assessment, autism, children's eating and drinking difficulties and complex communication needs. I also have an interest in capacity building in under-resourced settings overseas and in rural settings, with experience in Cyprus and Pakistan.

Research Themes
Research Summary
Motivated by clinical practice, my research investigates communication involving children with severe speech and physical impairments and their social groups. The aim has been to consider how technologies can be designed in new ways so that they foreground children's multimodal communication capabilities, values and priorities in the early stages of the design process. My current research is focused on sharing the findings of interactional research with multiple stakeholders from education, therapy and assistive technology contexts to inform how we support communication with technology for children with disabilities.
Teaching Summary

I have worked as a teaching fellow, contributing to the teaching and formative feedback on a Digital Design Thinking and Making (DDTM) module and currently supervise dissertation students on the MA Education and Technology course.
