I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology with Ergonomics and a Diploma in Professional Studies both from Loughborough University. For the past 7 years I have specialised in human factors, ergonomics and user centred design research across a broad range of industries including rail, healthcare, manufacturing, travel and others. My final year dissertation was completed for RSSB and South West Trains and investigated the influence of audio announcements on passenger behaviour on the train platform.
I am a member of the User Experience Professionals’ Association (UXPA) and a member of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF). I am working towards becoming a registered member with the CIEHF.
What do you do at Greenstreet Berman Ltd?
I apply my knowledge and experience to a broad range of projects at Greenstreet Berman to deliver both consultancy and training, particularly in human factors. I am accredited with the Award in Education and Training Level 3 (previously PTLLS) and have experience developing and delivering training in the UK and Europe.
What are your professional interests?
I have an interest in applying human factors principles in a broad range of contexts from the soft end of making people more comfortable at their workstation in applying ergonomics principles, to working in high hazard industries making the workplace safer, reducing human error and improving safety culture.
I am keen to raise awareness of ergonomics and human factors and the benefit of applying this in many contexts and have actively volunteered for the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors for several years.
What do you do in your spare time?
I enjoy going to group exercise classes and the occasional run, although I’m more motivated when in a class. I like going to comedy gigs and being in London, you get to see some great comedians including new acts trying to break through and more famous names trying out new material.
Tell us something we might not know about you
I’m a TV addict when I get into a good drama, particularly whodunit crime series that keep you guessing up to the big reveal.
