Nikki Newhouse

BA, PGDip, FHEA


Postdoctoral Researcher

My primary research interest is in human-computer interaction, in particular the development and evaluation of complex digital interventions to support physical and psychological wellbeing across the lifespan. I use qualitative and participatory design methods to explore how people use (and don't use) technology in the wild.

My doctoral work focused on the potential of digital resources as a source of wellbeing support in first time pregnancy.

Within NDPCHS, my work largely focuses on the SuMMiT-D study where I am involved in the development and qualitative evaluation of mhealth resources to support medication adherence in people with type II diabetes. 

I teach on the CEBM MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care (Critical appraisal of qualitative studies; Qualitative study design) and on the Advanced Qualitative Methods Course (Advanced data collection methods; Communicating your research); in addition, I teach Interdisciplinary Approaches to Digital Health Development and Evaluation at UCL.
