Research interests

I am a member of the Computer Human Adapted Interaction (CHAI) Group led by Professor Judy Kay. I have interests in context aware systems, customisation/personalisation using user models and related areas.

I am particularly interested in Simple Systems - novel interfaces that are easy to use, yet efficient and effective.

"Simplicity is a great virtue but it requires hard work to achieve it and education to appreciate it. And to make matters worse, complexity sells better." Edsger W. Dijkstra

Teaching and supervision

COMP5047 - Pervasive Computing
