Teaching & Supervision

I have 20 years of experience teaching at third-level covering mainly subjects such as Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design, CSCW and Qualitative Research Methods. I have taught various other subjects under the broad umbrella of human-centred computing.

I have given several invited lectures at other institutions, including the Limerick School of Art and Design (Ireland), the University of Siena, the IUAV University of Venice (Italy), the EUSSET International Summer School on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, and the CSCW Asia Winter School.

In the past, I was Postgraduate Research Tutor, Computing as part of the Industry & Innovation Research Institute PGR Team at Sheffield Hallam University.
