Our Interdisciplinary Approach

For 'Extreme' Citizen Science projects to succeed, a narrow disciplinary knowledge is not enough. It requires the engagement of communities, overcoming many technical and human-technology interaction challenges and the ability to deliver practical solutions, in addition to an understanding of the questions surrounding the science of Citizen Science. Our interdisciplinary group achieves this by drawing on the knowledge of geographers, anthropologists, computer scientists, Human-Computer Interaction experts, designers, electronic engineers, ecologists and other fields. 

We focus on participatory sensing, monitoring and modelling activities, with communities deciding what measurements are taken and how they are analysed so that they can participate in and lead subsequent decision-making and actions. We aim to change the current state of the art by developing technologies to enable lay people to understand and manage their environment with established scientific methods and models.
