About me

I am Assistant Professor (*Lecturership in UK) in Interactive Systems in the School of Computing and Communication at Lancaster University. I am affiliate faculty at the Data Science Institute in Lancaster.  I am part of the Interactive Systems (technical HCI) group.

My research is in the field of Human-Computer Interaction and Interactive Systems. Together with my research team, I work on topics around cross-device computing, augmented reality, physical computing, and IoT systems. My work combines human-centred design and interaction concepts with new interactive systems, machine learning, toolkits and interaction techniques. 

I teach Human-Computer Interaction, Design Engineering and Physical Computing in the Computer Science undergraduate and graduate programs at Lancaster University, and currently serve as the Director of Outreach for the Computer Science department.
