    Personal profile


    Sarah is a Lecturer in Computer Science at Edge Hill University (EHU). Prior to that, Sarah was an Associate Tutor in Computing at Edge Hill University, she also has extensive teaching experience of Computer Science within the Further Education sector.

    Sarah holds a PhD titled, ‘An IoT Approach to Personalised Remote Monitoring & Management of Epilepsy’, which was in collaboration with a specialist NHS trust, the project aimed to develop a personalised approach to caring for long term condition such as epilepsy. In particular, this project  investigated the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm’s smart devices for delivering healthcare.

    Continuing research, Sarah is interested in further development to identify how new smart devices together with existing devices can be utilised in order to deliver a more personalised approach to monitoring patients, by focusing on devices for healthcare monitoring, such as: EEG, ECG, EMG muscle tone, Movement detector and Pulse Oximeter. By applying her knowledge from subjects like Ontology language development and Cluster analysis a more accurate and refined way of remotely monitoring and managing the ‘individual’ patient can be endorsed.
