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