Research Areas

My current work focuses in User Centered Design, where I look at how to design technologies that adjust to the level of cognitive ability of a person as they progress with dementia. I am specifically focusing on technologies which provide engagement in enjoyable and meaningful activities for people with dementia. I have gained qualitative research experience using: content analysis, needs analysis, interviewing, and grounded theory analysis; as well as quantitative research experiencing using statistical analysis to support my qualitative findings.
