When it comes to research, Iā€™m interested in taking a step back and seeing the bigger picture, in understanding the context and systems that surround human experience, and in making connections between disciplines.

I take a critical realist approach, which acknowledges an objective reality outside of human perception, but foregrounds the compelling (individually and socially) knowledge-constructed realities we live within.

Working across the Human Computer Interaction, Psychology and Art domains, I try to remain critically aware of established norms and paradigms. I recognize the stunning complexity of human beings and am conscious of the value and ethical implications of any research conducted on human emotion, thought or behaviour.


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.
