Hi, my name is Nikki Newhouse and I work in digital health & wellbeing.
I am a PhD candidate at University College London, working with Ann Blandford at the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC) and Elizabeth Murray at the eHealth Unit. My research focuses on the role of digital resources to support maternal wellbeing in first time pregnancy. My interdisciplinary research explores how we can effectively integrate methods derived from Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and eHealth research to develop digital resources that are useful, effective, grounded in user needs and, most importantly, help people flourish.
In addition to my doctoral work, I am a researcher with the Nuffield Department of Primary Care at the University of Oxford. My varied work with the digital health team has involved clinical trials of novel digital resources and evaluations of digital resources based on patient experience information. My current role involves the codesign of technologies to support medication adherence for people with type II diabetes.
My background is in Psychology and teaching and, prior to becoming a researcher, I was an editor and journalist.
