Biography

Yvonne joined UCL in September 2011. From 2006-2011, she was professor of HCI in the Computing Department at the Open University, where she set up the Pervasive Interaction Lab. From 2003-2006, she was a professor in Informatics at Indiana University. Prior to this, she spent 11 years at the former School of Cognitive and Computing Sciences at Sussex University. She has spent sabbaticals at Stanford, Apple, Queensland University, University of Cape Town, University of Melbourne, QUT, UC San Diego and UC Santa Cruz.

She is one of the authors of the definitive textbook on Interaction Design and HCI (now in its 5th edition), that has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide and has been translated into many languages. She collaborates a lot with industrial partners and has been awarded a Microsoft Research Outstanding Collaborator Award (2016). Other awards include the Royal Society Robin Milner Medal (2022); a MRC Suffrage and Science Award (2020) for being one of the leading women in 'mathematics & computing.' She is also a Fellow of the ACM; a Fellow of the British Computer Society and a Fellow of the ACM's CHI Academy: "an honorary group of individuals who have made substantial contributions to the field of human-computer interaction. These are the principal leaders of the field, whose efforts have shaped the disciplines and/or industry, and led the research and/or innovation in human-computer interaction."

Research Summary

My research interests are in the areas of ubiquitouscomputing, interaction design and human-computer interaction. A central themeis how to design interactive technologies that can enhance life by augmentingand extending everyday, learning and work activities. This involves informing,building and evaluating novel user experiences through creating and assemblinga diversity of pervasive technologies. 

I was awarded a prestigious EPSRC dream fellowship rethinking the relationship between ageing, computing and creativity. I was the PI at UCL for the Intel Collaborative Research Institute onSustainable Connected Cities which ran from  2012-2018 as a joint collaboration with Imperial College.

Central to my work is a critical stance towards how visions, theories and frameworks shape the fields of HCI, cognitive science and Ubicomp. I  have been instrumental in promulgating new theories (e.g., externalcognition), alternative methodologies (e.g., in the wild studies) and far-reaching research agendas (e.g., “Being Human: HCI in 2020” manifesto). I have also published two monographs: "Research in The Wild" (with Paul Marshall, 2017) "HCI Theory: Classical, Modern and Contemporary." (2012).

I was one of the principal investigators on the UK Equator Project (2000-2007) where I pioneered ubiquitous learning. I have published widely, beginning with my PhD work on graphical interfaces to my recent work on public visualisations and behavioural change. I am one of the co-authors of the definitive textbook on Interaction Design and HCI coming out in its 5th edition in 2019, that has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide andhas been translated into 6 languages. I am a fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the British Computer Society and a fellow of the ACM's CHI Academy: "an honorary group of individuals who have made substantial contributions to the field of human-computer interaction. These are the principal leaders of the field, whose efforts have shaped the disciplines and/or industry, and led the research and/or innovation in human-computer interaction."
