Digital Health

My work focuses on exploring the use of digital health in patient populations, some of whom are living with long-term conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

With continuing advances in digital health, we are interested in identifying how digital health may support patients to self-manage their condition(s) and improve their outcomes.

Before joining the University of Oxford, I was at Loughborough University where I did my PhD. My PhD looked at how information (feedback) is presented via digital health technologies and whether the provision of both behavioural and physiological feedback could be more ‘persuasive’ for lifestyle behaviour change; in particular changes in physical activity.
