Research interests

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.

Brief biography

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 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.
