In my research I’m interested in taking a step back and seeing the bigger picture, in understanding the context and systems that surround human experience and behaviour, and in making connections between disciplines.

I try to remain open to what presents itself and critical of the established modes of thinking of the fields I work within (Human-Computer Interaction, Psychology, and Art). I am conscious of the ethics and utility of research on human emotion, thought and behaviour; I recognize the stunning complexity of human beings and promote caution when interpreting any research conducted in such a multifaceted and subjective domain.


I am currently doing an employment-based PhD with SilverCloud Health and Trinity College Dublin, exploring how people become ready or motivated to engage in mental health treatment. This project is co-funded by the Irish Research Council.
