What Do I Do?


I'm an independent researcher, consultant, trainer and presenter with an interest in emerging technologies and their impact on society.

My Research


I'm currently researching how technology can be used to help people improve their mental health and wellbeing. These technologies include - eMental health, eTherapy, mMealth (mobile health), telehealth, smartphone apps, wearables & sensors, fitness gaming, serious games & gamification, augmented & virtual reality, biofeedback & neurostimulation.

Up until late 2008 my professional focus was on Web 2.0 technologies and social software and their impact on teaching and learning. My last lot of research in the educational field was into the potential and impact of online virtual worlds and Multi-user Virtual Environments (MUVEs) on education and society. With Jo Kay I explored the educational uses of Second Life - a popular online 3D virtual world. Jo and I developed a directory of educational uses of Second Life which was originally available on the discontinued Second Life in Education wiki and is now available here: Educational Uses of Second Life.

Current Projects


I'm currently developing workshops introducing eMental health technologies and digital resources to people with mental health issues.
