Biography

I am Professor of Health Services Research at the University of Sheffield, UK, where I lead the Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology Research Group. I am also Honorary Consultant Clinical Scientist at Barnsley Hospital, where I am Head of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering, whose AT Team provides specialist electronic assistive technology services to people with disabilities in South Yorkshire.

Over the last 20 years, I have worked as a clinician and researcher – providing, researching, developing and evaluating assistive technology, telehealth and telecare products and services for disabled people, older people and people with long-term conditions.
