I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare in the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR).

I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of York in 2007 and went on to work as an Assistant Psychologist in the older adult services at The Retreat, a not for profit provider of specialist mental health care in York.

In 2013, I decided to move into research and joined the Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology Group within ScHARR, working as a Research Assistant on two projects in the field of dementia care and technology. In 2017, I completed my PhD investigating the use and accessibility of touchscreen apps with people with dementia.

My research interests are in applied health research in the field of dementia, frailty and ageing, with a particular interest in using technology to facilitate wellbeing and improve quality of life.
