Phil Joddrell

Phil is a PhD student at the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare (CATCH) in the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) at the University of Sheffield. He has eight years' experience working with people living with dementia in both clinical and research environments. Phil’s PhD is investigating the use of touchscreen technology with people with dementia, with the aim of increasing the accessibility of existing apps.

 

Phil complete his undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of York in 2007 and went on to work as an Assistant Psychologist in the older adult services at The Retreat, a not for profit provider of specialist mental health care in York.

 

In 2013, Phil decided to make the move into research and joined the Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology Group within ScHARR, working as a Research Assistant on two projects in the field of dementia care. InTouch explored the potential of games on touchscreen tablet computers for people with dementia and DigIT is developing an evidence-based protocol for the evaluation of assistive technology designed for people with dementia.

 

Phil’s research interests are focused on improving the quality of life for people diagnosed with dementia using everyday technologies.
