I am currently a Newcastle University Academic Track (NUacT) Fellow in the Faculty of Medical Sciences. I am part of the Brain and Movement (BAM) Research group at the Translational and Clinical Research Institute.
Within the BAM group, I lead the wearable/digital technology team where I supervise the work of Research Associates and PhD students.
My main research interest is in digital health, in particular enhancing the use of wearable technology together with innovative data analysis techniques as a tool to assess and predict motor impairments, falls risk and improve quality of life in ageing and neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s disease).
I am PI and Co-I of various digital health related projects (e.g. MRC Confidence in Concept project: Effect of medication on mobility in people with Parkinson’s disease, IMI-EU Mobilise-D, IDEA-FAST).
My first role at Newcastle University was as a Research Associate from 2012 until 2020 and then as a Senior Research Associate within the BAM team.
