Currently in the CDT MRes in Digital Civics. I studied Computer Science at Newcastle University, with a MComp in Games Engineering (graduated in 2014). My two dissertations focused on promoting staircase use through gamification and presenting the impact of ageing populations through interactive media.
After a brief foray into the videogames industry, I started working at Open Lab as a Research Associate in December 2014. I have been involved in the development of software applications for multiple projects, including Speeching (a speech and language therapy mobile application which uses crowd workers to provide feedback), VoiceBoard (a Raspberry Pi-powered peer support platform for people experiencing homelessness), Coaching (a mobile and web-based platform based off of Bootlegger, designed for users to submit footage for feedback by professionals) and Skin Selfie—a cross-platform mobile application used to track the progress of the user’s skin conditions over time.
My current research interests in the MRes are focused on developing new applications of interactive technology to aid in education.
