Department of Informatics

Role

I am a Research Fellow in the School of Informatics, currently working in a project about the cognitive science of tactile graphics. This research will provide insight into related perceptive and cognitive processes and so inform efforts to develop more effective designs. I am hopeful that these designs will greatly aid and improve the utility of tactile graphics for visually impaired people in the future.

Currently, I develop experimental approaches, methods for data gathering and analysis, as well as related software.

Over a longer period, I have been working in areas related to the design of representational systems for complex domains, compositional modelling, and knowledge acquisition with diagrams.
