Dr Jason AlexanderSenior Lecturer
My primary interests are in the area of Human-Computer Interaction, with my current focus on developing hardware for the next generation of input and output techniques. I have a particular interest in new display technologies, especially physically deformable displays, where the display can self-mutate to better represent the visual information. I also have interests in haptic feedback, gestural interaction, and electronic document navigation.
Jason is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University with research interests in Human-Computer Interaction. He was previously a Post-doctoral Research Assistant at Bristol University and completely his Ph.D. at Canterbury University (NZ).
