I hold a 50th Anniversary Lectureship in Psychology at Lancaster University and a Visiting Fellowship at at The University of Lincoln.

The majority of my work considers on how recent methodological developments in technology and data collection (often referred to as digital traces) can reveal information about individuals and their behaviour. This typically involves the integration of converging evidence from laboratory based behavioural experiments and large scale secondary data analysis.

More specifically, opportunities afforded by new technology are ideally suited to understanding the complexity of psychological processes as they unfold in everyday contexts. This has led my lab to develop new methods and theory to collect and understand real-world behavioural data (e.g., GPS location and screen time metrics). These are often applied within security and health contexts.
