I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Northumbria University, developing an app for people living with Sjögren’s Syndrome. I’m working with Kate Hackett in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, and John Vines in the School of Design.
My PhD was at the University of Glasgow, exploring how to increase efficiency when evaluating health apps and wearables for behaviour change. This included automating Single Case Designs / N-of-1 trials.
I’m interested in interdisciplinary approaches that combine methods from health and human computer interaction/computing science.
At the University of Glasgow I worked within both the Institute of Health and Wellbeing and School of Computing Science (Human Computer Interaction GIST group), supervised by Cindy Gray, John Rooksby and Matthew Chalmers.
I completed my Undergraduate degree in Psychology (also at the University of Glasgow). I was awarded 4 years of funding for the PhD (until 2018) through a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Scholarship (which supports interdisciplinary researchers).
