I am a researcher co-investigator on CHI+MED (EPSRC EP/G059063/1) and ECLIPSE (NIHR 12/209/27). My role is to investigate how medical devices are used in practice through interviews and observations. I specialise in evaluation and systematic qualitative research, methods and theory more broadly - we have recently published a book on Qualitative HCI Research. My current contributions revolve around four main themes:
1) Operationalising Distributed Cognition: DiCoT (Distributed Cognition for Teamwork) is a method that combines the structure of Contextual Inquiry and theory of Distributed Cognition. It was conceived as part of my MSc thesis and has been applied and developed inside and outside of UCLIC.
2) Operationalising Resilience Engineering: RMF (Resilience Markers Framework) is a framework that was conceived as part of my work in Norway. It has been used inside and outside UCLIC. We have also proposed an adaptation of FRAM so it is more applicable beyond safety.
3) Understanding 'situated methods': My PhD thesis investigated practitioner's adoption and adaptation of methods in HCI. My PhD thesis has been downloaded >1000 times from UCL Discovery, cited in two major European projects (MAUSE and TwinTide) and in 17 international papers.
4) Making Fieldwork for Healthcare and Medical Device evaluation more accessible: I led an international workshop where researchers shared their experiences and lessons learnt. This activity contributed to the development of two books to provide guidance to the broader community. I was lead editor on both books.
