Overview

I started my Computer Science PhD at UCLIC in January 2012 as part of the EPSRC CHI+MED project concentrating on patient experience and the safe use of take-home medical technologies with Prof. Ann Blandford and Prof. Yvonne Rogers. My PhD research focuses on mobile medical devices that are used by people with Type 1 diabetes in their own self management of the condition, such as glucose meters, continuous glucose monitors, insulin pumps, and diabetes smartphone applications.  As part of this research, I am exploring situated and 'in the wild' methods to investigate real world use. Preliminary results point to the influence that affective experiences might have on the adoption and everyday use of these devices.

Research Activities

- Autoethnography study to capture non-routine use of a wrist blood pressure monitor that cannot be easily accessed through user studies, specifically during travel, vacation, a conference, and a wedding in London, Toronto, and Austin.
- Contextual interviews in London, LA, and Toronto to explore the impact of healthcare culture on the use of diabetes technologies by people with Type 1 diabetes
- Diary study of diabetes technologies and an iPhone application to explore their situated use with people with Type 1 diabetes in London
- Contextual focus group of insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor Type 1 diabetes users.

Background

I am from Toronto, Canada where I gained a degree in Industrial (Human Factors) Engineering and a minor in Psychology from the University of Toronto and completed my undergraduate thesis on driver distraction with Prof. Mark Chignell.  After graduating, I worked for almost three years as a human factors associate consultant in the safety critical domain.  I moved to Sweden for my Master’s in Interactive Systems Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and conducted my thesis research at the Mobile Life Centre in Stockholm and also at the Man Machine Interaction Centre at TU Delft in the Netherlands on user trust in technology, supervised by Prof. Kristina Höök and Dr. Alina Huldtgren.  Before starting at UCLIC, I completed an internship at Microsoft Research in Cambridge supervised by Dr. Helena Mentis focusing on diabetes patients and diabetes specialists' information needs and sharing practices.
