I am recruiting PhD students to join our Interactive Systems group at Lancaster University. If you are interested in doing doctoral research in the area of human-computer interaction and physical computing, feel free to contact me to discuss research opportunities. In particular I am interested in:
- Multi-device or Cross-device interaction techniques, toolkits, systems and applications.
- Understanding how users interact with diverse and changing device and information ecologies.
- Interactive spaces and spatial/proxemic interaction techniques, displays and applications.
- Large interactive surfaces and displays, architecture and interaction.
- Human-data interaction, physical data visualisations, in-the-wild deployment of physical data installations.
- Large scale interactive systems, urban internet-of-things, sensor systems and public installation.
If you are a student at Lancaster University looking for a master or bachelor theses or project, please have a look at my project proposals. There are also options for (erasmus) internships working on physical computing and interactive systems.
