Dr. Kellie Morrissey
BA (Applied Psychology), PhD (Human-Computer Interaction)
A psychologist by training, my research interests are in the co-design of digital objects and systems in sensitive health & social care settings. I carried out my PhD in Experience-Centred Design for dementia care in University College Cork, and, after a 1 year postdoc on the MyPlace project in Open Lab, School of Computing, Newcastle University, I was awarded a career fellowship in 2017, where I led the Digital Social Care research theme in Open Lab for 2 years. In 2019, I transferred to the University of Limerick, where I took up the position of Lecturer in Design for Health & Wellbeing.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my rescue greyhound Maisie, reading fiction, cinema trips, crochet and yoga.
