I am a design researcher in the area of health and wellbeing, based in the Innovation School at The Glasgow School of Art. My work focuses on opening up the design process to include academics from other disciplines, industry partners, health professionals and the public. I design for meaningful engagement and participation through innovative community engagement, insight gathering tools, workshops, and digital and service prototyping.
Previous DHI projects have explored how people living with long-term conditions would like to be supported to self manage, leading to innovative concepts for the future of person-owned data stores and tools for gathering and visualising health and lifestyle data to generate insight. I work closely with citizens and health and care professionals to understand where people place value within care interactions and redesign person-centred services and technologies that foreground these moments. Through this work, I am researching how design-led methodologies can create spaces for participatory innovation.
