Stephen Brewster is Professor of Human Computer Interaction at the Department of Computing Science, University of Glasgow. He was recently awarded an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship for research in the area of interaction with tactile displays. His main research interests include haptics, audio and mobile devices.
Steve was a research associate in the Department of Computing Science. He has developed guidelines and heuristics for the presentation of simple visualisations using a multimodal (haptic and audio) interface. His other research interests include haptic interaction with force feedback devices, the role of prototyping in the haptic design process, distal attribution, multimodal feedback for target acquistion, tactile diagrams for blind people, multimodal feedback in gaming applications, and cyborg experiences. Steve left the project in December 2006, his new website will be available shortly.
Lorna was a PhD student in the Department. Her thesis is on display of tactons using vibrotactile interfaces. Her other research interests are data sonification, music visualisation and computer interfaces for blind people. Lorna spent the summer of 2005 working at Nokia Research Centre, Helsinki. Lorna has now joined Microsoft Research Cambridge as an Associate Researcher and details of her current research are here.
Eve is a second year PhD student in the Department of Computing Science. Her research is on cross-modal use of audio and tactile displays in mobile devices. Previously she worked in the Department investigating layout aesthetics of dynamic graphs, and studied joint honours in computing and music.
