University profile


My research interests focuses on the experience of living with long-term health conditions, ageing, and health technologies. I have thirteen years' experience working in health research, formerly as a Senior Public Health Analyst within the NHS, and more recently as a Researcher at the University. In 2014 I completed my PhD entitled 'A mixed methods exploration of the relationship between activities within the home and health: Implications for lifestyle monitoring'. My PhD was funded by Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

I have worked on a number of CATCH projects including the award winning MHealth Assist, HAT-VI, CABOT2, and IN-LIFE. I am currently a Research Associate on the project 'A Shared Space and a Space for Sharing' exploring empathy in online discussion forums for motor neuron disease and breast cancer.
