With a career in research, clinical science practice and management in the health service and university sectors, I am currently Professor of Health Services Research, carry out research and run a successful research group (0.8wte). I am also Head of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering at Barnsley Hospital (0.2wte) and Non-Executive Director of Medipex, the Yorkshire and Humber NHS Innovation Hub.

My main research areas are:
Telecare and telehealth technologies for older people and people with long-term conditions (technology to support independent living in the home and community), where my research group is one of the leaders in the UK. We collaborate on this theme with a range of European and UK academic and industrial partners. Grants from EPSRC, National Institute for Health Research.
Tele-rehabilitation (technologies to provide supported remote rehabilitation), in collaboration with a number of European and UK academic and industrial partners. Grants from Dept of Health and European Union.
Electronic Assistive Technology for Disabled People (technology to support independent living of severely disabled people). This is a long-standing research theme which has attracted substantial funding over a period principally from the Dept of Health, National Institute for Health research and European Union framework programmes.
