Brief biography

Dr Amid Ayobi is a Lecturer in Digital Health in the Department of Computer Science at UCL. His research aims to inform the design of agency supportive digital health technologies.

He investigated self-tracking practices in multiple sclerosis care as a PhD student at UCLIC and examined the digital mental health needs of people from ethnic minority backgrounds as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol. He worked with Aisling O'Kane and Paul Marshall on the multidisciplinary COTADS project aimed at co-designing machine learning models with young adults living with diabetes, data scientists, and clinicians.
