I am a researcher and designer, with a broad interest in human-centred design for health and wellbeing. I am particularly interested in co-design, placing users at the centre of the problem-solving process, and designing with them to gain a full understanding of user needs and create an experience that is efficient, enjoyable, and impactful.
I have been involved in a range of projects exploring how design can support health and wellbeing, from a service, technology, and policy perspective. This includes exploring how co-design can support the wellbeing of employees in the workplace and how disruptive technologies can enable service users to take more control of their own wellbeing. With a background in Psychology, I have recently completed a PhD in human computer interaction at Open Lab, Newcastle University that explored the design of services to support children's centres to facilitate parent-infant play in areas of low socioeconomic status.
