Favourite thing to do in research: Interview real users of technologies and understand their concerns
Passionate about how technologies can be used for good things and make a difference to our life!
I am a female computer scientist from Oxford CS and a mum of two young kids. I live in a village outside Oxford with my small family. As a busy parent, my favourite time of the day is my drive to Oxford every morning, when I sit in the car and think about what I am going to do today in the office, until I hit Oxford traffic. 🙁
I love running when I can, and I am a keen runner for all the 10K events around Oxfordshire. I can be addressed as she/her.
