Our work is characterised by a focus on understanding the socio-technical aspects of systems in the real-world so that we can usefully contribute to both technology itself and to debates about important societal issues, and technology's relevance and role in these.

Our work spans a number of pervasive computing application areas including:

  • smart health and wellbeing
  • augmented cognition
  • energy and sustainability
  • pervasive displays and analytics
  • transport information
  • support for trusted working practices

We work closely with partners that provide real-world settings for our studies and we receive financial support from a wide range of sources including EPSRC, TSB, EU and directly from industry.
