Personal profile

Research interests

I’m interested in using data obtained from mobile devices, smart wearables, apps and social networks in user profiling, behavior change and developing new research methodology. My projects range from investigating psychological markers of ‘digital footprints’ of behaviour generated by digital devices, developing novel data visualization techniques, and understanding psycho-behavioural implications of using ‘quantified self’ solutions in workplace, healthcare and security. I’m a co-founder of interdisciplinary Psychology Sensor Lab and member of an ESRC-funded Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST). More details can be found on my personal website.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am interested in hearing from potential PhD students who are interested in any of the topics listed above (or related), particularly those who are interested in work that crosses boundaries between computational and social science.
