I am Professor of Assistive Robotics and Intelligent Health Technologies in the Faculty of Environment and Technology at the University of the West of England and Theme Leader for Assisted Living at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory.
I have over 18 years of teaching and research experience working on externally funded projects with partners from a diverse range of commercial and industrial enterprise.

My multi-disciplinary background, underpinned by degrees in Electronic Systems Engineering, Biomedical Instrumentation Engineering and a PhD in Computer Science, enable me to address technical issues from a soft systems perspective in relation to human experience of technology in different contexts. My current portfolio of projects includes assistive robotics technology to support older adults with ageing-related impairments, intelligent data processing for smart home sensing, sensor systems for understanding children's use of powered mobility and adaptive interfaces for driverless cars. I have also co-designed an app for self-management of anxiety, SAM

My teaching subject specialisms are Interaction Design and Human-Computer Interaction. I am available for consultancy work in user experience design and data mining.
