My name is Amy Dowse, and I'm a PhD student at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
I've been at QMUL for almost eight years. I first enroled in 2015, and in 2018 I achieved a 1st Class Degree with Hons in Computer Science. I recieved the Science and Engineering Excellence Scholarship for all three years of my degree for maintaing above 80% in all modules, and also recieved the final year prize for Outstanding Achievement at graduation.
I then continued at QMUL, and in 2019 achieved a Masters with Distinction in Computer Science. I was also the recipient of the Electronic Engineering and Computer Science Prize at graduation.
At the end of 2019 I sussessfully applied for an EPSRC DTP studentship to carryout my PhD at QMUL. I am part of the Cognitive Science Research Group within the School of Electronic Engineerings and Computer Science. I began my research in January 2020 and plan to submit my thesis in early 2024.
My research is looking at whether existing techniques in CBT/Mindfulness be embedded into an app that can be seen to be useful to people with anxiety and chronic pain.
The 'Research' tab has information about the studies I am carrying out as part of my PhD.
The 'Background' page within the 'Reseach' tab explains where my research fits within the existing knowlege around anxiety, chronic pain, and technology.
The 'Research Argument' within the 'Research' tab explains how my studies come together to answer my overall research question.
