PhD research

I am beginning an LKAS funded 4 year PhD looking into the evaluation of mobile health technology. The experimental methodologies typically used to test health interventions (such as Randomised Control Trials) have been identified as sometimes unsuitable for health apps. The PhD aims to develop alternative methodologies using an interdisciplinary approach – by exploring tests of effectiveness already established within the relevant disciplines of public health, social science, computing science and HCI. These methods will be assessed regarding their suitability for integration into an evaluation framework, with outcomes tailored to the needs of public health providers
