Biography

I am a Professor in the School of Computer Science and Statistics, at Trinity College, Dublin, and a Fellow of the College. I have led a number of research projects in the area of Human Computer Interaction, with a focus in recent years on the design of healthcare technologies. This work has involved collaboration with researchers in Intel, Microsoft Research, IBM Research, University of Newcastle, University of Cambridge, Cornell University, University of Minho (Portugal), Lancaster, KTH University College London, University of California Irvine, University of California Berkeley, and Imperial College London, among others. Our work has been funded by the European Union, the European Agency, Intel, Microsoft Research, Science Foundation Ireland (through Lero and CNGL/Adapt), the HEA, Enterprise Ireland, and the Irish Research Council.

A major focus of my work over the last decade has been on the design of technologies for mental health. The aim has been to develop systems which can increase access to, increase engagement with, and assist in improving the outcomes of mental health interventions. As P.I. of the Technology Enhanced Therapy project I led the creation of the SilverCloud platform for e-health interventions, and am co-founder of SilverCloud Health, established in 2012 and now a leading worldwide provider of online mental and behavioural health interventions.

Research Expertise

Description

My research in the area of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is focussed on improving healthcare technologies and designing effective digital health systems. By improving our understanding of human interactions with technology, my work enables the design of more effective digital health systems which support human engagement, and which extend the reach of clinicians. To achieve this, my team has produced a series of innovative technology interventions which have had a profound impact on the delivery of digital mental health services worldwide. I was sole P.I. for the project which produced the SilverCloud platform for human-supported online mental health interventions, used in hundreds of health services worldwide, including over 75% of NHS IAPT services. Evidence based interventions have been delivered to over 1 million patients worldwide. I have played a leading role in establishing the human-centred design of technology to support mental health care as a research area. My Healthcare Technology Design group has conducted genuinely ground-breaking research on the use of technology in child and adolescent mental health services, mobile health applications, online interventions, and machine learning in mental health. This work has been published in the leading venues in the discipline of HCI (one of the largest disciplines in Computer Science), including 16 full papers at the ACM CHI Conference, and over 55 journal articles, including high impact HCI, health informatics, and clinical journals relevant to the interdisciplinary research of my team. This is complemented by my international leadership roles in supporting development of this research area through editorial and organisational roles (including Chair of the ACM Distinguished Speakers Committee), and by my collaborations with researchers in leading universities and industrial research laboratories worldwide. The contributions of our empirical and exploratory research in real-world contexts are complemented with foundational work on engagement, technology acceptance, design methods, and ethics.
