Matthew Chalmers is a Reader in Computer Science, and a researcher in human computer interaction (HCI), ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) and information visualisation. Half of his career has been in industrial research labs, extending back over 20 years to work at Xerox on the first ubicomp systems, Active Badges, and founding the visualisation group at UBS Ubilab. He borrows from philosophy, biology and other disciplines in order to feed into the design and theory of computer systems, especially mobile and ubiquitous computing. He leads the social/ubiquitous/mobile (SUM) group, combining theory, application design and infrastructure, e.g. establishing seamful design, in which limits and gaps in infrastructure are made into resources for users, and advancing mobile games as a vehicle for computer science research. Current grants include: A Population Approach to Ubicomp Systems Design , implementing a notion of software class as a varied and evolving population of instances; Contextual Software, pioneering ‘mass participation' in the design of ubicomp software; Designing for the Social Sports Fan, a KTA fellowship working with Rangers FC and Turner Broadcasting Systems; and Smart Tourism p, involving research and technology transfer in ubicomp for Scottish tourism. e.g. with the Edinburgh festivals and the Glasgow museums.
