Research/academic (grade 6 or 7) engager of the year

Dominic Furniss, UCL Interaction Centre

Dominic Furniss, winner of the 2014 prize for public engager of the year (research/academic staff grade 6/7)

Dominic has been a great source of public engagement ideas within the UCL Interaction Centre. His 'microwave racing' and Errordiary projects have raised awareness of human computer interactions and errors, and through these projects and others he has developed quite a range of engagement activities.

As well as leading public engagement activities himself, Dominic has acted as an advocate for public engagement among his colleagues. For example, he has encouraged peers to get involved in Bright Club, public engagement workshops and other activities.

Dominic’s enthusiasm for public engagement has made him the standard-bearer for public engagement, leading the way for his peers and making a real contribution to a change in culture at UCL and beyond.
