Professor Corina Sas
Human-Computer Interaction and Digital Health
I enjoy interdisciplinary research and lead large-scale interdisciplinary projects. My research interests include human-computer interaction, interaction design, user experience, designing tools and interactive systems to support high-level skill acquisition and training such as creative and reflective thinking in design, autobiographical reasoning, emotional processing and spatial cognition. This work explores and integrates wearable bio sensors, life-logging technologies and virtual reality.
Professor Adrian Friday
Ubicomp for sustainability, systems support for ubiquitous computing, the Internet of Things
Interested in applying ubicomp sensing to conduct real-world empirical experiments to uncover how everyday practices contribute to carbon externality and global warming, and how we might transform these using technological ubicomp interventions. Recent work has explored energy in the home, time-shifting energy demand, adaptive thermal comfort, sustainable food choice, and promoting sustainable last-mile freight services.
Professor Nigel Davies
Nigel Davies is a Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Co-Director of Data Science Institute at Lancaster University. His work is in the area of pervasive computing including systems support for new forms of data capture and interaction and is characterized by an experimental approach involving large-scale deployments of novel systems with end-users.
Professor Sumi Helal
Digital Health, the Internet of Things, Pervasive Systems
As Chair of Digital Health, I lead interdisciplinary research and initiatives in digital health in both the School of Computing and Communications (Faculty of Science and Technology) and the Faculty of Health and Medicine. My active areas of research focus on architectural and programmability aspects of the Internet of Things (systems research), and on pervasive/ubiquitous systems and their human-centric applications with special focus on smart spaces, proactive health/wellness, patient empowerment and e-coaching, and assistive technology in support of personal health, aging, disabilities, and independence.
