My current research falls in the broad area of HCI for Health & Wellbeing: including work aimed at improving the design of interactive systems designed for health contexts, and investigating the planned and unplanned impacts that interactive systems such as digital games can have on us. 

Current projects:

A rational framework for modeling interactive search (EPSRC First Grant) GR/T28225/01. £122,692 The project started in February 2005 and ran for 2 years 3 months. (PI)

Where it all began:

In this photo that was taken in the early 1980s I am "helping" my nan try to use a BBC computer.  I seem to have been watching people use computers ever since!

After spending some time following the instructions (I don't remember what she was trying to achieve), my nan famously said something like "Well it's all very interesting but I don't think it will catch on"!
