I am a lecturer of Psychology at Lancaster University UK

My research expertise is in the field of behaviour analytics and behaviour change with a focus on how we can study behaviours using new technologies. I examine how computational methods can test theories of psychology and behaviour in contemporary ways and how we can use technologies to encourage behaviour change. However, this requires an understanding of the technical, ethical and privacy considerations of studying behaviour using digital means. Therefore, I am interested in how psychological research can improve the way digital footprint and sensor data is created, obtained, and used for public good.
