Dr Keith Cheverst


Research Overview

My research over the last decade has focused on exploring the obdurate problems associated with the user-centred design of interactive systems (typically systems that utilise mobile and/or ubicomp technologies and incorporate aspects of Locative media) in complex or semi-wild settings and the deployment and longitudinal study of these systems in order to gain insights into issues of user adoption and appropriation. Current projects include ‘SHARC’ which is supporting the co-design of technology for the Shared Curation of local history in a rural community (for more detils please visit: https://thesharcproject.wordpress.com).
