Ubiquitous Computing Display Ecologies Novel and Tangible Interaction Surface Interaction mobile computing Sensor networks Affective Computing ubicomp infrastructure


I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Leicester where I studied computer science. Subsequently I worked in industry for a few years as a network compliance tester for Microsoft’s Xbox projects. I went on to do an MSc in Human Centred Computer Systems at the University of Sussex. My masters’ dissertation was concerned with the design of affective wearable systems used to appropriately augment social environments. My research proposal has the title “A toolkit for the design of loosely coupled display ecologies.” At this stage the intention is to investigate multi-user, multi-device environments looking at the interplay between individuals in collocated groups. Studies will focus on the interplay between personal devices, such as smartphones and situated displays. This work will sensitise requirements using a user centred design process, the findings of which will be employed in specifying a toolkit which defines an infrastructure solution and user interaction style.
