    Personal profile


    I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Intelligent Healthcare (CIH) at Coventry University. I have recently completed my PhD with a background in health and psychology.

    My current research project is exploring how wearables can be used for the self-management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

    Research Interests

    My research interests include chronic health conditions, respiratory disease, COPD, behaviour change, physical activity, and wearable technology. 

    I am interested in qualitative research, with experience in thematic synthesis, reflexive thematic analysis, and Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA).

    PhD Project

    My PhD research explored the experiences of people with COPD using activity monitors and healthcare practitioners' perspectives of their application within healthcare. This included conducting a scoping review, an interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) study with people with COPD, and a thematic analysis study with healthcare practitioners.
