Research summary

 I am interested in how computers are made, what they are made from, and how we might support individuals with limited resources to make their own computers. I'm also interested in interdisciplinarity, genealogy and art history.


I lead a number of initiatives on public deployments of computer science research. I study the practical use of technologies in everyday situations, particularly designing tools and techniques to support social interaction.

  • use of technology in public
  • public engagement with computing research
  • social interaction
  • human-computer interaction
  • human-robot interaction
  • haptics and force feedback
