I have researched the psychological impact of human-computer interaction and its design for more than 30 years, while living and working in the UK, Singapore, and Sweden. With almost 200 publications to my name I am perhaps best known for work on topics such as information exploration, IT and ageing, the sense of presence and creativity in mediated environments. I have a PhD in Experimental Psychology and am a Chartered Psychologist of the British Psychological Society. 

I am interested in new ways in which information technologies can be designed and applied to enhance health and life quality for a wide range of individuals: in everyday life, in clinical settings and in other specific circumstances. In addition to my own research, I review project proposals and progress, and provide consultancy services to a range of organizations.
