Final year PhD student at the University of Glasgow, exploring how to increase efficiency when evaluating health apps and wearables for behaviour change.
I use an interdisciplinary approach combining methods from health and computing science/HCI. Particular interest in automating Single Case Designs / N-of-1 trials (as an alternative to randomised controlled trials), and the use of user logs and online app stores to remotely test if an app changes behaviour.
I completed my Undergraduate degree in Psychology (also at the University of Glasgow). I have been awarded 4 years of funding for the PhD (until 2018) through a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Scholarship.
