Research Associate (Mental Health & Wellbeing), University of Glasgow
Dr Matthew Jamieson is a post-doctoral researcher investigating assistive technology to help people compensate for cognitive difficulties after neurological impairment. He has a particular interest in assistive technology for memory in brain injury rehabilitation. Recently, he has focused on the design of smartphone reminders to improve everyday independence for people with memory difficulties, or encourage sustained desired behaviour change from the user. His work utilises several methodologies including systematic literature reviews, participatory design, qualitative research, and single case experimental design.
He has developed collaborations with computing science and neuropsychology researchers and has worked with several charities and services that provide acquired brain injury rehabilitation. He has published in computer human interaction and neuropsychology journals.
He has recently worked on a pilot feasibility trial of the ApplTree reminding app – an app with features co-designed with patients and clinicians to encourage and support independent reminder setting. This is a 2 year project funded by the Chief Scientist Office.
