Overview

My research is interested in Human Factors Psychology, with a particular focus on cyber security behaviour change, usable security, and how psychological principles can inform the design and outcomes associated with devices, interfaces and systems. I also have an interest in work-life-balance and how technology can be used to help promote well-being and post-work recovery.

Biography

I have a degree in Psychology (University of Exeter), and MSc in Research Methods in Psychology (UCL) and completed my PhD on the positive and negative outcomes of massively multiplayer online role playing games (MMORGs) in the Psychology department of Goldsmiths, University of London.

I have since completed research posts across Psychology, Computer Science and Management departments, conducting research in human-computer interaction (UCL Interaction Centre), serious games (Coventry University), behaviour change (UCL, University of Birmingham) and cyber security (University of Bath).
