I’m a Researcher in the Human Experience & Design (HXD) group at MSR Cambridge. My research interests centre on healthcare and inclusive design. Currently, I explore innovative approaches for applying AI and Machine Learning in real-world applications that seek to augment human capabilities.
Day-to-day, I create and study technological innovations that can positively transform people’s social and emotional lives – independent of socio-economic background, personal ability or age. My research predominantly takes an experience-centred, qualitative and highly collaborative approach that places user participation and real-world technology deployments at its core.
I have a background in Applied Media and Communication Science (BSc & MSc, University of Duisburg-Essen) and hold a PhD in Computing Science (Newcastle University). Previous to my position at Microsoft, I was a Research Associate at Newcastle University’s Culture Lab investigating how technology can become a useful vehicle in promoting peoples’ mental health and wellbeing.
