Dr Christopher Bull

Senior Research Associate

Research Overview

My research interests lie in exploring software engineering for society, in particular, systems and healthcare technologies (including assistive, diagnostic, or therapy systems) for healthy ageing through the use of digital sensing, IoT, and mobile devices. My current work is on supporting older adults with independent living (Mobile-Age; H2020), through reducing social isolation and loneliness. My previous work looked at the early detection of Alzheimer's disease (SAMS; EPSRC). I have an interest in the ethical challenges of healthcare technologies, and I also have a strong interest in applying mixed methods to complex problems in the digital healthcare field.
