Gemma Teal

Gemma Teal

Research Fellow in the Design Research Team

Gemma is a design researcher specialising in health and wellbeing.

She focuses on opening the design process to include academics from other disciplines, industry partners, health professionals and the public. She designs for meaningful participation through innovative community engagement, insight gathering tools, workshops, and digital and service prototyping.

Gemma’s research interests include developing and applying participatory design approaches and visual methods within health and wellbeing contexts, and in using design to enable and integrate multidisciplinary research collaborations to design evidence-based interventions.

Gemma has a Masters in Product Design Engineering and a wealth of experience through her work for GSA and a large science and technology consultancy.

She has led projects exploring how people-centred digital and service innovation can support: self-management of diabetes, new models of care for people living with multiple long-term conditions, and new ways of empowering citizens and health and care staff through person-owned data stores.
