My background is in social work, social care commissioning and project management. After completing my MA in Social Work at Leicester University, I worked for social services in a variety of roles and projects concerned with the transformation of social care services towards Personalisation.

I Joined CATCH in October 2014 as a PhD student with the Technology for Health Ageing and Well-being (THAW) research scholarships. My current research is concerned with the loneliness and social isolation of older people and the role of technological interventions to overcome this.
