My research is in the areas of ubiquitous computing and technologies that support health and wellbeing. I helped to establish the Open Movement platform, whose ‘AX3’ device has been widely used in movement research and population studies. This has led to recent work focussed on movement sensing with wearable computing, including projects supporting people with conditions such as Parkinson’s and strokes.
More broadly in health and wellbeing, my projects have included systems to support exergaming and safe walking for people with degenerative conditions, video coaching, reflection within counselling, population weight-loss, and nutrition. Previous work includes sensor-instrumented environments that assist their users, for education or additional support. More widely my research has involved novel interaction technologies with media, mobile devices, table-top surfaces, telepresence and virtual/augmented environments.
