Projects per year
I am active in the areas of interaction design, product aesthetics and innovative design teams, and have led EPSRC, AHRC, and Carnegie Trust funded research projects. Prior to joining DMEM I worked as a product design engineer for a number of consultancies, and have continued to engage with industry through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and consultancy work since then. I am currently Deputy Co-ordinator of a 14-partner European project, PRIME-VR2, on the use of virtual reality for rehabilitation.

User experience: I have four PhD students whose topics include aesthetics, remote presence, movement-based product interaction and UCD for advanced manufacturing. I collaborate with a colleague from Theatre Studies to use elements of dance and drama teaching in the exploration of movement in product interfaces.
Information support for designers: I am PI on an EPSRC project investigating how patents can support innovative engineering design, having previously been involved in several research projects (DIDET, KIM) focussed on collaborative tools for design teams. I have been involved in KTP projects with Hulley & Kirkwood Consulting Engineers and SI Associates on the implementation of Knowledge Management systems to support effective working.
Drivers of innovation: I am CI on an EPSRC/AHRC project investigating the relationship of humour constructs to creativity in the design process. I collaborate with a historian from Dundee University on the development and movement of design technology, in particular through the Victorian period. I have a continuing interest in the effect of culture and creativity as drivers of innovation and have published a number of papers on these topics.
