Dr Heather Shaw

Lecturer in Psychology

Fylde College



Research overview

Heather holds a PhD in Psychology and is studying how digital traces of behaviour can infer individual differences about a user.  She has explored how you can measure technology use objectively through real time logging and has developed theoretical ideas to explain the underpinnings of technology usage. Her work in CREST explores group dynamics including how to disrupt cohesion of criminal groups and the analysis of language using computational approaches such as LIWC. Also, of interest is the exploration of new analysis methods when quantifying human behaviour, including machine learning approaches such as decision tree modelling. Heather is interested in out-of-the-lab solutions, measuring behaviour “in-situ” using smartphone applications or other mobile technology.
