I am the director of UCLIC. I am also a visiting professor in the Computing Department at the Open University, where I was the director of the Pervasive Interaction Lab.I am also a visiting professor of Informatics at Indiana University (where I was from 2003-2006) and Psychology at Sussex University (where I was from 1992-2003 in the former School of Cognitive and Computing Sciences). I have also spent sabbaticals at Apple, Stanford University, University California San Diego, and the University of Queensland.
I research and teach in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), ubiquitous computing and computer-supported
cooperative work (CSCW). A particular focus is augmenting and extending everyday learning and work activities with novel technologies. This involves designing enhanced and engaging user experiences through using a diversity of technologies, including mobile, wireless, handheld and pervasive computing.
My particular approach is human augmentation; I develop and apply theories of human cognition and computation to the design of technologies, including graphical interfaces, multimodal, tangibles, mobile devices, multi-touch and ubiquitous computing.
In 2012, I was elected as a fellow of the British Computer Society and the ACM CHI Academy. I was also awarded in 2011 a prestigious UK EPSRC dream fellowship to rethink the relationship between ageing, computing and creativity.
I teach the Masters HCI-E course Design Practice with Duncan Brumby.
My current PhD students are:
Lisa Koeman (UCL, 2012-)
Rose Johnson (UCL, 2009-)
Stefan Kreitmayer (Open University, 2010-)
Nadia Pantidi (Open University, 2008-)
Ricky Morris (Open University, 2007-)
Anijo Mathew (Open University, 2007-)
