Dr Roisin McNaney

Lecturer in Digital Healthcare Technologies

Research Overview

I am interested in all things digital health but am particularly passionate about:

  • using technology to facilitate health self monitoring and management
  • working with people experiencing long term conditions (e.g. Parkinson's, dementia, stroke), and their care givers, to design healthcare technologies
  • supporting Speech and Language therapy practice through digital technology
  • exploring ethical encounters in Human Computer Interaction (https://ethicalencountershci.com/)
