Summary

 

Summary

Simon is a human factors psychologist at the NIHR London IVD Coop, based at Imperial College. London IVD supports diagnostic test manufacturers in generating evidence to facilitate the adoption of their technology into clinical practise. Simon uses human factors methods, such as clinical pathway mapping and cognitive task analysis, to support this evidence generation for medical devices.

Simon’s PhD, conducted at King’s College London, examined how health professionals multitask and use technology in complex and dynamic clinical settings. Current research interests include how technology can be designed to support handling competing demands, and, separately, the impact of men's work-life decisions on family life.

Before his academic career, Simon worked for 10 years in industry (primarily healthcare) as a behavioural scientist and management consultant. 

Simon is a member of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF) and a chartered psychologist (CPsychol) with the British Psychological Society.
