Telemetric measurement of interoception and digital therapeutics
My early research focused on computational intelligence approaches to understand and classify emotion in music making, which forced me to examine the psychophysiology of play, flow and stress. Having built technology (apps+sensors) that attempts to measure stress and interoception in neurotypical adults, I am now investigating the influence of interoceptive awareness on stress, as well as aspects of organisational behaviour surrounding empathy and vulnerability. I'm most interested in whether training interoceptive awareness through digital forms of biofeedback could contribute to better stress resilience and foster empathy, currently building pilot studies to test the feasibility of these ideas in large populations.
