I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Salford, working on a research project in neonatal skin care. I am also an Associate Lecturer at The Open University, lecturing on the level 3 module entitled ‘Interaction Design and User Experience’. I completed my PhD in the area of digital health in June 2016 from the University of Warwick, where I was a doctoral researcher in Experiential Engineering, part of the EPSRC funded Participation in Healthcare Environment Engineering (PHEE) programme (my publications from my PhD can be found here).

I have worked as a postgraduate mentor at the University of Warwick,  a part-time teacher, founder and managing editor of PhDViva, examiner at Edexcel, University Advisor at Mendeley, and actively blogged on my own website, at the PhDLife blog and The LSE Impact blog. I was also a community governor at an under-performing secondary school in Cambridge, and I have also worked as a social media consultant and web-designer.

I am currently also involved in reviewing for a number of academic journals including Medicine 2.0 , Nurse Researcher and the Journal of Medical Internet Research. I have a background in computing, web design, education, librarianship and management.
