My research focuses on understanding how health and wellbeing technologies are used in the wild. My research focuses on the way in which technology can be used to support maternal wellbeing in the context of low risk, first time pregnancy.
I have a BA in English Literature from UCL, an MA in Psychology from Oxford Brookes University and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have worked as a qualitative researcher within the Nuffield Department of Primary Care at the University of Oxford since 2012. I teach at undergraduate and postgraduate level at both UCL and Oxford (qualitative methods/ interdisciplinary methods for the development and evaluation of digital health tools). Prior to starting my PhD, I was an editor and journalist.
