About me

I am a researcher with a background in human sciences, currently an interdisciplinary researcher of human computer interaction and computer-mediated living, interested in the study of situated embodied conduct within technology studies. I recently successfully defended my PhD at Brunel University where I held a joint Dorothy Hodgkin-EPSRC and Microsoft PhD scholarship to study technology use in everyday life.

My methods involved working with ethnographic material: video data of families in cars, observing how they talk, use media, interact and communicate with each other inside cars. The theoretical basis of my research came from applying ethnomethodology, conversation and interaction analysis to study of how technology has become a ubiquitous part of everyday (family) life.
