I am interested in digital health, in particular the role of novel technologies in encouraging and supporting wellbeing and personal flourishing. My research focuses on the way in which technology can be used to support and promote maternal wellbeing in the context of low risk, first time pregnancy.
I have a BA in English Literature from UCL, a PGDip in Psychology from Oxford Brookes University and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I taught research methods for two years at Oxford Brookes and currently lead the Academic Writing module on the UCL eHealth Unit Qualitative Research methods course. I have worked as a qualitative researcher with the Health Experiences Research Group (Nuffield Department of Primary Care at the University of Oxford) since 2012. My current work with HERG is focused on the codesign and clinical evaluation of digital and mhealth resources to support medication adherence in Type II diabetes. Prior to starting my PhD, I was an editor and journalist.
