Brunel University (

Mark Perry is currently a Senior Lecturer at Brunel University in the UK, and holds Visiting posts as a Professor at the Mobility Studio and as a Fellow at Bristol University. Mark is an interdisciplinary researcher with interests spanning cognitive science, computing and social science, and when forced into a corner describes himself as a 'user studies' researcher.

Mark's work with the Mobility Studio has centred on studies of live video production - by both amateur and professional teams. His research activities revolve around the use of mobile information and communications technology, and in the use and design of ubiquitous/pervasive computing and networked information appliances. He has worked on HCI and CSCW-related research areas as diverse as ethnographic studies of nomadic work, communication in the home and the development of an architecture for ubiquitous multi-modal interaction, taking pot shots at urban trashing behaviour, waiting, and the use of space along the way.
