About

I mostly focus on research within the areas of wearable sensors and socially assistive robotics.

Teaching:
Interactive Systems (F27IS)

Biography

I hold a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science from the University of St. Andrews (2011), an MSc in Human-Centred Interactive Technologies from the University of York (2012), an MSc by Research in Computer Science (University of York 2014), and successfully defended my PhD at The Open University in 2018.

My PhD research focused on rhythmic haptic cueing and how it can be used for rhythmic entrainment through haptic cues for the gait rehabilitation of hemiparetic stroke survivors. During my PhD, I also designed and implemented a prototype system of wearable devices (called the Haptic Bracelets), capable of monitoring gait and providing the rhythmic haptic cues.

I currently work within the Interactive and Trustworthy Technologies group looking on social robots and wearable sensors and their applications for assisting elderly people.
