Welcome to my working home page.
Judy Kay photo My primary research and teaching is in human computer interaction (HCI), ranges from creating new technology to broader studies to inform its design and learn about its use.

My research group, CHAI: Computer Human Adapted Interaction Research Group works in surface computing, making interactive tabletops and walls, and personalisation technology, particularly for life-long, life-wide learning that ranges form the highly technical, such as learning to program, to the generic skills of learning to collaborate effectively.

I lead the nascent Human Centred Technology Cluster. This highly multi-disciplinary group is a priority research area for the Faculty of Engineering and IT.

I am a member of two multi-discipinary research networks: PLANET - Physical Activity Network, leading its New technology Research Theme and the STL - Sciences and Technologies of Learning Network.

Unlike my formal home page This is a highly dynamic resource for my students and colleagues. Enjoy!
