My research interests include Technology, Healthcare, Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. I have an interdisciplinary academic background, which includes Artificial Intelligence, Psychology, Philosophy and Human-Factors Engineering.
My recent research has been within the areas of technology and healthcare, and more specifically involved assistive robotics, virtual and augmented reality, cognitive screening and cognitive rehabilitation. I am currently working on several projects including: NeuRoMS (Neuropsychological Evaluation and Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis), this project aims to:
- Develop a neuropsychological evaluation pathway, to routinely assess all people with MS for cognitive problems attending NHS MS clinics.
- Develop and test a brief neuropsychological rehabilitation programme for people with MS with 'mild' cognitive problems.
In this project I have been responsible for delivering the technological aspect of the cognitive screening pathway.
ExoRehab: Stakeholder elicitation to develop a value proposition for exoskeleton rehabilitation technology in the NHS'. In this project I am conducting preliminary Patient and Public Involvement interviews in order to ascertain the state of adoption of robotic Exoskeleton walkers and related devices in health services in England.
