University of Sussex ()

I am interested in researching human interaction with technology and I like to think of myself as an Interaction Design Researcher. This entails a very multi-disciplinary mix of methods and processes that draw on fields such as cognition, behavioural science, psychology, computer science and engineering as well as social science, creative arts, design, philosophy and anthropology.

More specifically, my key research interests are: Human-centred Interaction design (particularly Participatory Design); Assistive Technologies; Multi-modal Interaction; Audio & Sound in HCI; Design Patterns; Human-Human Interaction; Technology and children;
