I am keen to consider applications to study for a PhD or MPhil on topics related to usability, user evaluation, user aspects of mobile computing, usability aspects of domestic computing devices and novel interaction styles.
I am currently supervising Revathy Nayar's PhD on apps to support child speech therapy, Majed Al Khan's PhD on wearables to support independent travel for young adults with Down's Syndrome, and Ryan Gibson's PhD on interactive support for people with cognitive impairements in medical consultations.
- Gennaro Imperatore - PhD on mobile interfaces for users with complex communication needs;
- Karim el Batran - PhD on mobile interaction for Arabic users focussing on form completion and text entry on tablets, phones and watches;
- Frøy Bjørneseth - PhD on muti-touch interaction in safety critical environments;
- Sohail Azad - MPhil on evaluation of mobiles;
- Andreas Komninos - PhD on pre-caching of information on palmtops;
- Nick Bradley PhD on interface design for context aware mobile systems.
In addition to these I have supervised many level-3, level-4 and MEng/MSc projects, currently including: smartwatch text entry, visualisation of financial data, wearable navigation for cyclists and stroke rehabiliation wearables.
I have acted as external examiner for PhD theses (at Aston, Brighton, Cambridge, Cape Town, Dublin City, DTU Copenhagen, Essex, Helsinki, Lancaster, Northumbria, Swansea, Tampere, UCL and Udine) and MScs.
