I am a senior user researcher in the civil service, having recently left my post at the University of Salford where I was a post-doctoral research fellow. 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 2017 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 (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, web-designer and librarian.
I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the Q Community. I am
also a reviewer on the Health Research Ethics panel at the University of Salford, and on the reviewer panel for NIHR. I also review journal papers for a number of academic journals including Nurse Researcher, Health Expectations, BMC Health and Quality of Life Outcomes, and the Journal of Medical Internet Research. I am on the Cambridge Scholars Health Editorial Advisory board.
