Personal profile


I have a research career spanning over ten years. I have worked on two European funded projects (BackHome and AIDE) and a HSC R&D funded project, all from inception to completion. The first project was with the Cedar Foundation on a project funded by the European Commission called AIDE. This project aimed to develop a novel state of the art modular multimodal perception system that could be customized and adapted to the needs of people with complex disabilities. The second EU project aimed at moving brain neural computer interfaces (BNCI) from the laboratory toward practical devices used at home with minimal support. The project included incorporating these novel systems with telemonitoring,environmental control systems and eHealth solutions. The HSC R&D funded project, called TESA- DRI, explored the lived experience of people living with dementia and their caregivers within technology enriched housing schemes. I have extensive research experience within the fields of health care, disability, emerging technology, user participation, mental health, participatory action research,and social inclusion with various populations including professionals, people living with disabilities and dementia, caregivers, and people with severe mental illness. I have also undertaken research on important issues such as disability and sport, physical education, trauma and mental illness, ethical issues and aspects of psychological service provision. I have lectured on the topics of disability, lifespan, society, leisure, participatory action research, patient and public involvement (PPI), mobility equipment and assistive technology. Additionally, I have given a number of motivational talks to a wide range of audiences.
