Research Interests

My primary research interest is studying cognition in complex real-world settings to understand how technology and socio-technical systems can be (re)designed to better support the cognitive work of people. This includes researching theories and methods for studying cognition in real-world settings, such as Distributed Cognition and Cognitive Work Analysis. I am particularly interested in human-centred domains, such as healthcare and humanitarian aid.

My PhD, part of the CHI+MED project, investigates how self-caring patients interact with dialysis machines in their homes, through Distributed Cognition and Contextual Factors.

My MSc project focused on understanding how nurses interact with infusion pumps in an intensive care unit, from a Distributed Cognition perspective. The work was published in Journal of Biomedical Informatics and got recommended by Faculty of 1000.
