Welcome to My Website

Martin PorcheronHello, my name is Martin and this is my website. I’m a UK-based postgraduate student, currently at the University of Nottingham, undertaking a PhD in multidisciplinary Computer Science.

Before my PhD, which I began in October 2013, I completed a four-year MSci in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at Nottingham and graduated in the first class. My PhD research is focused around how to better support mobile device use in collocated interactions, and I recently have published a paper on how mobile devices are used in pub talk and how we use systems like Siri or Google Now around friends when socialising. I currently research how we use smart devices like the Amazon Echo in the home.

I am based at the Mixed Reality Laboratory in the School of Computer Science and am supervised by Joel E. Fischer and Sarah Sharples. During my PhD, I undertook an internship in the Mads Clausen Institute, at the University of Southern Denmark, under the supervision of Andrés Lucero. I am supported by the Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training (RCUK Grant No. EP/G037574/1) and by RCUK’s Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute (RCUK Grant No. EP/G065802/1).
