In my research I’m interested in taking a step back and seeing the bigger picture, in understanding the context and systems surrounding human experience and behaviour, 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 (art, psychology, interaction design). 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 the design of a digital ‘readiness for change’ intervention to prepare and motivate clients for online therapy. This project is co-funded by the Irish Research Council.
