Personal profile

Research Statement

Dr Kent's research focuses on evaluation of medical devices and novel technologies for treatment and assessment of children and adults with physical disabilities, particularly cystic fibrosis and cerebral palsy. 

Dr Kent currently works with Dr Claire Kerr (School of Nursing and Midwifery), Leckey and Ulster University on a Connected Health Innovation Centre (CHIC) collaborative project.  The project involves the development of a digital toolkit for the assessment of physical activity in children with cerebral palsy and evaluation of mobility devices in this population. 

Her doctoral research evaluated the LifeShirt in children and adults with cystic fibrosis.  The LifeShirt is an ambulatory system which integrates data from respiratory inductive plethysmography, electrocardiography, accelerometry, pulse oximetry and cough microphone. 

Dr Kent has worked as a research coordinator within the Northern Ireland Clinical Research Network in Respiratory Health.  Previously she coordinated the European Cystic Fibrosis Society Clinical Trial Network Standardisation Committee.  The ECFS-CTN Standardisation Committee evaluates novel endpoints for clinical trials in cystic fibrosis and develops standardised methods for their use in multicentre trials.

Dr Kent is currently undertaking an MSc in Data Analytics.
