My interests range broadly across the border between interactive systems and society, with a particular focus on using artificial intelligence in interactive systems, usability and design.
I am Director of the HCI Centre at the University of Birmingham which exists to promote leading-edge research and development in theories, designs, methodologies, and systems to support people in whatever they want to achieve.
The group acts as a focal point for research, development and expertise in anything that has the user at the core. This includes:
• Theories of interaction
• Mobile and pervasive computing
• Intelligent agents
• Supporting behaviour change
• e-learning and HCI education
