Digital: the new frontier in healthcare

Everything is affected by the digital revolution. The opportunities for improving healthcare could be extraordinary. Interdisciplinary research is key to this. The UCL Festival for Digital Health will connect UCL’s world-class research in computer science, engineering, medicine and health service delivery. Together they can have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations. Collaborations across engineering and healthcare will make UCL a leading institution for Digital Health research. Join us to discover new technologies, Share achievements, Network with staff, industry and healthcare and Create new collaborations – a new momentum!

Ana Tajadura-Jiménez

Position: Research fellow
Affiliation: UCL

Dr Ana Tajadura-Jiménez is an ESRC Future Research Leader at UCLIC. Her research interests are multisensory body perception and emotional processing in everyday contexts and new media technologies. Her approach to research is essentially empirical and interdisciplinary, bringing together perspectives from psychoacoustics, neuroscience and computer sciences. She is a PI on the ESRC funded The-Hearing-Body project that investigates the influence of self-produced action sounds and of sounds accompanying one’s gestures on the sense of one’s body. The project aims to inform the design of audio-based applications that can improve body-image, movement patterns and interactions to support wellbeing and physical rehabilitation.
