Teaching and supervision
I work one day a week currently developing the research environment in computing, publishing and developing esteem.
Research interests for potential research students
I act as an additional supervisor for new PhD students.
I have worked in human-computer interaction and interaction design since 1982. I have developed e-learning software for secondary schools, computer games, software development tools and websites. My research has spanned all the major aspects of interaction design: software architecture and design notations; contextual research and its integration within the development process; software product/service strategy using worth as an organising concept; usage-focused evaluation methods such as user testing and inspection methods. I have also developed a range of innovative resources for design and evaluation for interaction, interior and fashion design with my research students. These include resources for project tracking, audit and critical reflection.
