I am also involved in the supervision of these research students:
Heloisa Candello Pereira
Heloisa has been studying the behaviour of tourists on guided tours as part of her work on developing audiovisual mobile support for cultural heritage.
Erminia is a research officer on the EPOCH project, developing her PhD on ICT interpretation for a museum on Hadrian's Wall.
Diana is researching the concept of the new HE student as "digital learner".
Neil is working on usability meatrics for visual languages used in the software engineering process.
Recent PhD graduates are:
Ana Vitoria Hulshof Joly
Ana, who graduated from the MSc programme in Digital Television Management and Production, is now halfway through her PhD project on designing digital media interfaces for pre-school children. She's also been closely involved with the Interactive Everywhere project.
Study of CMC in an academic environment - a cross-cultural study of women's use of the Internet in the UK and Malaysia.
Michael is working with CENTOPS, the Centre for Tourism Policy Studies on the impact of computer mediated communication on the experience of the culture of the backpacker. This involved field work in South America, for which he's obtained sponsorship from British Airways.
Design and development of an interactive TV service for learners.
Liz GuyVy Rajapillai
Ethnographic study of an IT department, using Activity Theory as an analytical framework, entitled From rollout to appropriation: changing practices of development and use during a groupware project. There's lots of information about the work on Liz's web site. Liz is Senior Lecturer in CMIS.
Cross-cultural study of computer mediated communication: European and Indian academic collaborations. Vy is currently working at the University of Brighton, dividing her time between CMIS and the School of Languages. She worked as Research Officer on our current project to investiagate technological support for stakeholder participation in SCIE.
Empirical study of CMC across academic disciplines. Jenny worked for several years as a post-doc first in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel-Hill and then at Nerdi, the Networked Research and Digital Information group at the Netherlands Institute for Scientific Information Services in Amsterdam. She's now back in the UK at the Oxford Internet Institute.
A framework for describing and selecting Computer Supported Co-operative Learning applications. Ruth worked as an educational researcher at the Open University's Institute for Educational Technology and became part of Brighton's e-learning scene with Epic.
Simon's thesis developed the concept of Method oriented design environments, with a proof-of-concept system for parametric analysis. His work was supported by Integral Solutions Ltd. Simon moved to work as an educational technology researcher at Oxford University's Teaching and Learning Centre, from there to a post leading developments in digital learning environments at the University of Sussex here in Brighton adn thence to Cranfield Univeristy of Technology. He's now Senior Lecturer at the University of Melbourne, where he maintains his always original blog.
Claire wrote her thesis on interactive animated icons and has broad interests in semiotics and HCI. After working as a post doc researcher in Denmark and the Netherlands, she's now part of the HOT lab at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
