Personal profile

Research interests

My curriculum interests encompass the theories and principles that underpin the discipline of user experience design, UXD. To this end, I am the course leader of the University of Brighton's MSc in UXD. Primarily, this course equips students with the practical skills to work as effective UXD practitioners within the interactive / digital industries. Further, students are encouraged to critically reflect upon and question the effectiveness of contemporary thinking that underpins UXD best practice.  

My research interests focus upon the efficacy of diagrams. My PhD explores the impact of graphical choices on diagram comprehension. Presently, I am collaborating with colleagues from Cambridge University on a project entitled ‘Accessible Reasoning with Diagrams’; the project is funded by The Leverhulme Trust https://sites.google.com/site/myardproject/ . I am also collaborating with colleagues from Jadavpur University charting the cognitive processes active when interpreting diagrams.
