Rob's research interests lie in examining the roles that technology plays in defining organisational priorities in the delivery of social care services and how systems can support rather than restrict practice in the social care sector and their ability to widen access and reduce stigma.
He is working on interventions which maximise the way in which technology can develop therapeutic alliances with users and is interested in examining the nature of the human computer relationship in psychological therapy.
Rob spent 10 years working within web and print publishing as publishing technology manager before changing his career to social work. After 3 years working within mental health support services in Greater Manchester, Rob moved the Lancaster University to research web based interventions for bipolar disorder with the Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research.
Rob's research interests centre on the use of technology to transform the delivery of health and social care. This includes examining the relationships between users of psychological interventions and the technology that enables it and how the rapid uptake of personal devices can be harnessed to support improved access to psychological therapy.
