About

We are an interaction design and ubiquitous computing research group.

Our group was established in 2008. It's led by Prof. Dave Kirk and has a core team of around 80 researchers.

Our work focuses on the experience-centred design of digital technology, human-computer interaction (HCI) and applied challenges in ubiquitous computing.

Many members of the group originate from disciplines outside computer science, including:

  • psychology
  • electronic engineering
  • sociology
  • clinical sciences
  • education
  • design
  • fine art
