Information on Final Year
I'm interested in supervising
in the most areas of Human Computer Interaction and Digital Media, especially mobile applications and those with an emphasis on user research, evaluation and interaction design.
would also be interested in projects with a methodological interest,
new ways of evaluating a product, methods for involving end users, new
design languages and so on.
The following are some specific
for projects I would like to see developed, but feel free to suggest your own:
Innovative user-centred product
design and implementation of a
to support user experience designers carrying out usablity evaluations of software
- applications for
context aware mobile service using GPS and/or RFID tags. We have a toolkit to make implementing mobile, context sensitive services pretty easy. Tourist guides or similar would work well. An evaluation of the toolkit would also be a good project.
evaluation study of mobile/iTV
programmes or services with specific user groups, e.g. young males,
people, children, etc. Applications for the Wii or PSP would be interesting here.
Call in to Watts 602 or email

programs to support language learners or students with English as a second language (part of a research project)

students in their group projects
- redesign and implement a multimedia authoring kit for children
- a mobile treasure hunt for new students in Induction Week
