I'm a Lecturer at UCLIC specialising in Ergonomics, and the Programme Director for our MSc in Human Computer Interaction with Ergonomics.

I have completed a research programme on the ergonomic impact of the use of laptop computers in educational settings, from which we produced an ergonomic advice leaflet for students using laptops. I am currently working on a campaign to introduce User-Centred Design into schools.

Research Interests

  • Application of ergonomics to product design
  • Practice of ergonomics by non-ergonomists
  • Use of technology by the public
