Biography

I trained in engineering and worked as a design engineer before taking a human factors PhD in the UCL psychology department where I also subsequently had a researcher post. I held an academic position at City University in London before joining the computer science department at UCL. 


Research Summary

My research investigates adaptation and personalisation, smart interfaces, and media multi-tasking interfaces. The work has application to productivity apps and mobile apps, smart meeting rooms and collaborative learning environments. It combines human factors and systems engineering approaches to developing novel user interface concepts and design techniques. Funding has been generously provided by the research councils, the European Union, industry and by central government agencies.

Teaching Summary

I teach classes on database and information systems to undergraduate and postgraduate students in Computer Science. I also teach classes on intelligent systems on the undergraduate programme. I have previously taught classes on cognitive science and on user interface technology.
