Kevin Marshall | Doctoral Trainee

Kevin Marshall

I am a PhD student at the School of Computing Science at Newcastle University, working at Open Lab. My PhD aims to explore  how we can use digital technology to build on existing parenting practices and support parental engagement in their children's language development.

Before coming to Open Lab, I completed a BA Psychology (National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG)) and an MSc Human Computer Interaction (Lancaster University). I have also worked as a research assistant in both the Centre for Research in Occupational and Life Stress and the School of Psychology at NUIG.
