Dr Stephen Lindsay
- Lecturer in Healthcare Technologies (School of Computing Science)
I'm a human-computer interaction (HCI) researcher focused on digital health and wellbeing. I look at collaborativem and social elements of healthcare, empowering marginalised groups through participatory action research and making, and working with people living with variouss cognitive impariments.
I'm interested in how people collaborate with each other to manage health problems and the differernt rolls that digital technology can play in those proceses. At the moment, my research focuses on helping people make their own technology while living with cognitive challenges like aquired brian injuries. I explore techniques to open up makerspaces to groups of people to build new skills, communities and technologies.
In my previous work, I have looked at how to design digital aids to help promote safe walking for people living with dementia who are at risk of wandering, how to design and deploy in-home monitoring systems for older adults in ways that respect their privacy, and looked at barriers to using assistive technology for various groups.
I welcome enquiries to supervise research students with interests in:
- Digital healthcare
- Participatory design
- Accesible making
- Year 2 Object Oriented Software Engineering
