Professional biography

I am principally a human-computer interaction (HCI) researcher. My research interests are motivated by wanting to understand how we can best design technology to fit within, and where necessary change, peoples practices and behaviour. The work I do is interdisciplinary cutting across computer science, psychology, information science, design and education.
