I am a member of the Institute for Communicating and Collaborating Systems
(ICCS) within the Division of Informatics.
My research focuses on Human Factors in computer systems design.
My interests range from user interface design to organisational issues in the
adoption of IT systems. Current research includes:
- The design of computer-supported collaborative work (CSCW) systems.
- A study of Human Factors issues in computer-assisted mammography,
funded jointly by EPSRC and the Scottish Office.
- A study of social learning and multimedia in a bank
(in collaboration with the University's Research Centre for
an EC-funded project under the Telematics for Research programme
investigating tools for social and collaborative filtering.
- A study of user-led design and development in medical
informatics, a project funded jointly by the EPSRC Human Factors and
Healthcare Informatics programmes.
My publications may give a more detailed
picture of my current research interests.
