I am the Professional Lead and Head of Division of Occupational Therapy at London South Bank University. After qualifying as an occupational therapist in 1997, I worked in clinical, managerial and research roles in the NHS in east London, UK and in São Paulo, Brazil. My areas of clinical specialty include adult community rehabilitation, primary care, and home adaptations.

Research interests focus on older people, ageing in place, assistive technology, health informatics, and innovation in health and social care.

My main research interests focus on older people, ageing in place, assistive technology, health informatics, and innovation in health and social care. I explore these topics through qualitative methodologies and user-centred design and co-production.

From 2011-2013 I was a visiting Senior Research Fellow at Queen Mary University London and co-investigator on the ATHENE project (Assistive Technologies for Healthy living in Elders: Needs assessment through Ethnography).

My Professional Doctorate in Occupational Therapy, completed in 2014, explored the concept of participation (as introduced in the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health) in advanced age.

In 2017 I was awarded a Research Career Development Grant by the United Kingdom Occupational Therapy Research Foundation for a project “Occupational therapists and digital care records: exploring health and social care integration through ethnography.”
