I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare in the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR).

I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of York in 2007 and went on to work as an Assistant Psychologist in the older adult services at The Retreat, a not for profit provider of specialist mental health care in York.

In 2013, I decided to move into research and joined the Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology Group within ScHARR, working as a Research Assistant on two projects in the field of dementia care and technology.

In 2017, I completed my PhD investigating the use and accessibility of touchscreen apps with people with dementia.
