I am a Professor of Human-Computer Interaction in the Department of Computing
Science at the University of Glasgow, UK. My main research interest is in Multimodal
Human-Computer Interaction, sound and haptics and gestures. I have done a lot
of research into Earcons, a particular form of non-speech sounds.
I did my degree in Computer Science at the University of Herfordshire
in the UK. After a period in industry I did my PhD in the Human-Computer
Interaction Group at the University of York in the UK with Dr
Alistair Edwards. The title of my thesis was "Providing a structured
method for integrating non-speech audio into human-computer interfaces".
That is where I developed my interests in Earcons and non-speech sound.
If you go to my publications list you
can get a copy of my thesis, should you want one.
After finishing my PhD I worked as a research fellow for the European
Union as part of the European Research Consortium for Informatics and
Mathematics (ERCIM). From September,
1994 - March, 1995 I worked at VTT Information
Technology in Helsinki, Finland. I then worked at SINTEF
DELAB in Trondheim, Norway.
As of the begining of October 1995, I started lecturing in HCI at Glasgow
University in the UK. If you want to
know anything about what I do then send
me an email. I have been hard at work building up a world-class research
group in multimodal HCI. You can find out what each of the members of
the group is doing from the group homepage.
You can find me on Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Search
