Welcome to my website

Welcome to my website

I am a Research Associate at the University of Nottingham, in the Mixed Reality Laboratory, which is part of the School of Computer Science. My research is in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW).

I have an MSci in Computer Science with AI, and have recently submitted my PhD, which I undertook in multidisciplinary Computer Science. My work focuses on the study and design of everyday technologies in our lives, from using smartphones whilst talking in pubs through to the use of informal health advice systems in sub-Saharan Africa.

I have recently published research on the use of voice interfaces in everyday life at the annual CHI conference–this research won a Best Paper Award (given to the top 1% of submissions)! A summary of this work is given in this blog post. With my colleagues Joel Fischer, Stuart Reeves, and Rein Ove Sikveland, we have presented further ideas from this work in the paper Progressivity for Voice Interface Design, which also won a Best Paper Award at the Conversational User Interfaces conference.
