Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a core member and Research Fellow within the Digital Health and Wellness team at the University of Strathclyde. I am interested to build both national and international professional connections around the themes of healthy ageing and digital health. I want to develop excellence in digital health across ideation so that we can bridge digital divides and support those most in need to achieve the public health ideals of healthy ageing.

I am an experienced researcher having worked across many related fields such as: clinical study designs, epidemiology, digital health and the development and implementaion of innovations to impact upon healthcare. A paticular focus is that of caregivers and people with dementia. I have also worked with, and alongside the World Health Organization in Geneva, where my role was focused on the design of an Internet-based intervention to connect and empower caregivers of people with dementia (https://www.isupportfordementia.org/en). I have published 30 peer review (including those in press) articles to date including 13 first or last (lead) author papers- please see google scholar profile for further information: https://tinyurl.com/y7l4mdgo.

I am currently accepting applications from prospective PhD students.
