A sociologist by background, Andy started working with computer scientists and software engineers when he did his PhD with John Hughes at Lancaster. John pioneered the use of ethnography in systems design and Andy has been working on shaping computing around the social for the best part of 20 years now. He has published widely, including a couple of textbooks on ethnography for design. He was awarded an RCUK Academic Fellowship in 2006, which solidified his work at Nottingham in the Mixed Reality Laboratory, an interdisciplinary research group with an international reputation for innovative work at the interface between computing and society.
