Profile

Alison is a designer and researcher currently based in the Preventive Neurology Unit, where she is a Lecturer in Patient Public Involvement (PPI) and Public Engagement in Science (PES). Her practice-based research sits at the intersections of PPI, PES, Science and Technology Studies and Design Research.

She aims to articulate how design-led methods can study the notion of ‘patient experience’ within both healthcare and medical research settings, leading to the design of more inventive service interactions.

Alison studied Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art, before completing her PhD in design-led research at Goldsmiths, University of London. She has collaborated with the Bart’s MS research team in the Centre for Neuroscience and Trauma at QMUL since 2012, focusing on interactions between people with MS and researchers studying the condition. Her designs investigate how patient experiences of people with MS might be improved through speculative design, design-research and design-led interventions.
