I am Joseph W. Newbold and I am an HCI and audio researcher with interests in sonic interaction design, digital health and wellbeing.

I am currently a Lecture in Computer and information sciences at Northumbria University and am working on a variety of research projects surrounding physical activity and well being and audio interaction.

I was previously  a research fellow at the UCL Interaction Centre, exploring musical displays to reduce sedentary behaviour for office workers, and a member of the GetaMoveOn fellowship program.

I gained my PhD at the UCL Interaction Centre investigating how the implicitly understood and embodied aspects can be used in sonifications for physical activity to directly modify body behaviour. I have a MEng in Electronic Engineering with Music Technology Systems from the University of York. Previously I have worked on a number of research projects at UCL and completed a research internship at Microsoft Research Cambridge.
