Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom


I’m a PhD Computer Science student at Newcastle University within the Digital Interaction group. My research aims to empower communities through the development of grassroots led technologies.

Dev Projects a platform for communities to commission and automatically generate their own mobile apps around the real world issues that they face., a mobile app that allows breastfeeding mothers to rate and review suitable breastfeeding locations., a social network to deliver cognitive behavioural therapy to those with insomnia and severe sleep disorders., a Foursquare & UK Police data mashup that creates a personal crime exposure history from your Foursquare checkin data., a novel discovery interface for online heritage collections.
