Dr Alice Good
I am a Senior Lecturer in Human Computer Interaction at the School of Computing, University of Portsmouth.
Previous posts have included lecturing for collaborative courses affiliated with the University of Portsmouth, including Informatics, Singapore, and the International College in Portsmouth.
My research interests lie in tools and applications that support mental health and wellbeing. My expertise lies in user centred design and evaluation, including acceptance, user enjoyment, usability and accessibility.
Over the last 12 years, I have provided usability and accessibility consultancy to several small companies as well as the charity Shelter.
- Tools and applications to support wellbeing. This can apply to tools that facilitate cognitive restructuring, behaviour modification, self-monitoring, self-soothing and others. In addition, tools that meet the specific needs of people recovering from mental illness.
- Looking at usability and accessibility issues for web-based resources, for people experiencing mental health problems. The Web is providing increased access to the provision of health care, as well as a variety of resources that facilitate support and self-help. Accessibility is an important consideration.
- Current projects in collaboration with the Department of Psychology at the University of Portsmouth, are looking at developing mobile applications to reduce negative thinking and improve wellbeing.
