For the past twenty years I have been researching how people might use their mobile devices to connect to information, services and other people.

 

 

 

 

NEW: MOBILE APP BOOK

 

 

Ten years ago I co-wrote Mobile Interaction Design and have written a number of other articles that address these issues too: Google seems to find most of them; the ACM Digital Library has others; and, I maintain this list, too.

 

My work has been funded by Research Councils (like EPSRC) and a number of fantastic industry partners.  I work at the FIT Lab in the Department of Computer Science, Swansea University. I enjoy serving on various advisory boards including the RCUKs Digital Economy PAB; and, EPSRCs ICT SAT. I was recently involved in the review of UK HCI.

 

You can “always” drop me a line by using your wit to add that username to acm dot org.

 

 

I’m currently doing a lot of thinking about wearables and how they can enhance social interactions.

 

Oh, and I love cycling: click on the picture to learn how great Swansea is for cyclists.
