I am a researcher and technology designer working in the fields of health and security, with expertise in design and interactive systems development.
My experience is mainly focused on a practice-led approach, or ‘research through making’, with specific groups of users such as police, clinicians, older adults, children and those with chronic health conditions. I have worked on a number of user-centred design projects, where I have performed roles throughout the product development lifecycle, from the initial user-research phases, into design and implementation, through to user-evaluations of the final prototype. This includes work across mobile, desktop and immersive virtual reality. My skills include user-research, interaction and user-interface design, development and prototyping, and usability testing.
I have worked on projects such as: the development of an immersive reality surgical training system for the Ministry of Defence; the design of graphic solutions representations of Excel formulas for dyslexic students; the design of an intergenerational digital product to promote physical activity amongst the elderly; as well as the redesign of asthma inhalers in a co-design process with children.
Projects I am currently involved in include virtual reality training environments for the police and research into the potential of digital technologies for improving the services provided to victims of domestic abuse.
