I study how people use technology and use that knowledge to create new products and services, digital and physical. My approach combines research, engineering and design experience with insights from psychology, sociology and philosophy. I strive to design tools which provide meaning, empower users and support the pursuit of wellbeing.

I am a Human Computer Interaction (HCI) researcher at Trinity College Dublin. Part science, part art, this discipline explores the potential of technology to tackle human-centred problems. My current work focuses on the design of systems to support the self-report of psychological wellbeing during pregnancy.
