It was quite a long road to where I am I guess. Like many people involved in I started down that track through family experience.

I was working at Nokia on UI design methods when my dad became ill with cancer and I gave up full time work to be a carer. Really as a way of getting out of the house I started a master's in multimedia design with a thesis looking at the accessibility of mobile devices.

And that kind of led into the PhD.
