Department of Informatics


I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Informatics, currently working in a project about the cognitive science of tactile graphics. This research aims to provide insight into the perceptive and cognitive processes related to tactile graphics and so inform efforts to develop more effective designs. Such novel design approaches may be helpful to improve the utility of tactile graphics for visually impaired people.

Currently, I'm developing 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 and interactive knowledge tools for complex domains; compositional modelling; as well as knowledge acquisition with diagrams.
