Nervo Xavier Verdezoto D

Lecturer in Computer Science, University of Leicester

I have recently joined the Department of Informatics at the University of Leicester (UK) as an Assistant Professor/Lecturer. My research interests focus on the intersection between at the intersection of Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) with particular interest on Healthcare and Sustainability domains.

Through a Design-oriented research approach, I combine user-centered and participatory design methods to further understand people’s everyday practices, different stakeholder’s needs and how people appropriate technology into their everyday life. I have been working in various projects related to healthcare, physical computing, and sustainable HCI. Most of my research is aligned with the turn to practice in HCI, in which the understanding of everyday practices plays a major role in system design.
