Research Interests

I’m a senior lecturer in human factors and interactive technologies. My research investigates the design and use of technologies for learning, decision-making and explanation. Funding for my research has been provided  by the UK research councils, the European Commission, public sector agencies and industry. I have advised the UK government on its IT projects.

MSc Student Projects

I supervise projects in human factors and user interface design. This includes how interactive systems are designed, the functioning and qualities of user interfaces, and how users use interactive systems from the point of view of their knowledge and reasoning. Projects for students on Computer Science programmes usually involve building prototype user interfaces and testing them or using them in experiments. Projects for HCI postgraduates usually involve empirical studies of user interfaces. I have particular interests in:

  • learning technologies, including environments and tools for collaborative learning, exploratory learning and game based learning
  • multimodal user interfaces, in particular interfaces using speech and visual text, including multitask situations
  • user interfaces for analysis and decision making with complex data.
