RESEARCH FOCUS

I am the Head of the “Design and Collaborative Technologies Research Group (web-page coming soon). My research focus around the 3 strong themes.

  • Interaction Design and User-Centered Design.
  • Searching as Learning, and
  • Collaborative Information Searching and Information Access.

The common intersection of these themes are HCI and Interaction Design. Within each of these areas I have established cooperation with national and international researchers and research teams and Universities.
Some of the research areas that my research involve:

  • Collaborative Information Seeking and Retrieval
  • Human information interaction in digital environments
  • Intersection of Interaction Design and Industrial Design
  • Task-based IS&R and Contextual approaches to information seeking
  • Technology Enhanced-Learning and Design for Learning
  • User and Usage-oriented studies and evaluation methods such as Ethnography, Participatory design, Usability testing
