Bio

Research

I completed my BSc Psychology degree in 2012 here at the University of Dundee. After taking a year out, I returned to do the User Experience Engineering MSc degree offered by the (then) School of Computing and finished in 2014. I began my PhD in March of 2015 and my research is in the area of situational impairments. Specifically, I am looking at how to assist designers in creating mobile content that is easier to use within different contexts (e.g., in bright environments). I'm a member of DAPRlab
(Digitally-Augmented Perception Research lab) and my broader interests cover many aspects of HCI such as accessibility and UX.
