Personal profile

Biography

Louise graduated from the University of Birmingham with a BSc in Psychology and Sport Science in 1998, and with a PhD in Electronic and Electrical Engineering in 2002. Her PhD research focused on the design of simulated environments for training and evaluating surgical skills. This led to an EPSRC funded post at the University of Warwick to apply Human Factors to the development of a virtual reality training system for knee surgery.

After then working in occupational psychology consultancy for 2 years, Louise joined Coventry University in 2006. She is currently appointed as Reader in the department of Industrial Design and is the Director of the Centre for Excellence in Product and Automotive Design (CEPAD).

Louise’s research interests lie in embedding Human Factors within the design and evaluation of systems and products for healthcare. Recent projects have focussed on the specification and development of computer-based systems for healthcare, and the design and evaluation of assistive technology.

Research Interests

Health design, human factors, ergonomics in healthcare, usability, patient safety, virtual reality and user centred design.

Vision Statement

The focus of Louise’s research is on reducing risk and improving dignity, safety and health outcomes through design. As a Human Factors specialist, Louise is mainly involved in interdisciplinary research within healthcare. Her focus is on working with end-users in the design, development and evaluation of products, systems and services to increase technology acceptance and safety.
