Thanks to Per Ola for WordCloud idea...

My research focuses on improving the usability of mobile systems (smartphones, tablets and smartwatches) through new interaction techniques and their evalaution - in particular, I have investigated text entry methods, sensor driven interaction and visualisation methods for mobiles.

My research on mobiles spans the activities of the Mobiquitous Lab (which I lead), the Digital Health and Wellbeing Group and the i-Lab.


I have over 100 publications, primarily in the domains of mobile usability and information retrieval, and an h-index of 22 according to Google - see my Google Scholar HomePage.


Recently I have been involved in the following projects:

Together with Stephen Brewster of Glasgow University, we have co-organised four meetings of the International Conference Series in Mobile HCI: MobileHCI 04 at Strathclyde, Mobile HCI 01 at IHM-HCI 2001 in Lille, Mobile HCI 99 at INTERACT '99 in Edinburgh, and MobileHCI 98 in Glasgow (with Chris Johnson). I am secretary to the international steering committee overseeing MobileHCI, a founding associate editor of the journals International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction and Advances in Human-Computer Interaction, an associate editor of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, an associate chair for CHI 2008 & 2012 and a founding member of the editorial board for Springer's new open journal of Communications in Mobile Computing (ComC). In 2015 I was appointed as sub-committee co-chair for Usability and User Experience at CHI 2016
