I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Centre for Practice and Healthcare Innovation at Trinity College Dublin. My research resides within Psychology, Human Computer Interaction and Patient Public Involvement. I obtained my PhD in Psychology funded by the Digital Arts and Humanities PhD Programme (PRTLI Cycle 5), based at University College Cork. The thesis focused on supporting positive interactions within dementia relationships of care. This saw me in the role of researcher, advocate, and educator.
Since then I have worked at Dublin City University, the Centre for Innovative Human Systems at Trinity College Dublin, and University College Dublin (across H2020, FP7 & Enterprise Ireland funded projects) exploring how digital design can respond to, and help understand, society’s health and well-being.
I am currently working on the H2020 ProACT project, exploring the potential for digital technology to improve and advance home-based integrated care for older adults with multimorbidity.
I’m passionate about people, their stories and how our material environment allows us to express these stories and/ or indeed shape them; experience, empowerment, design, and health are my usual vernacular.
