Personal profile

Research interests

I previously obtained an undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Glasgow followed by an MSc and PhD. Since then, I've contributed to or led a variety of research projects funded by RCUK, government agencies and private bodies.


Most of my work considers the data that digital technologies collect and how the resulting information can provide insights about individuals and their behaviour, delivering positive social, economic and industrial impacts. For example, opportunities afforded by new technology are perfectly suited to understanding how people behave in everyday life. However, unlike other methodological developments in psychology (e..g, eye-tracking or fMRI), mass-adopted technologies (e.g., smartphones, social media and video games) are subjects of interest in their own right. I am equally interested in the impact this technology has on people and society more broadly.
