Current projects and publications.


Christchurch is the hub for exploring the stunningly beautiful South Island of New Zealand. We love hosting visitors. Visitors include Wolfgang Stuerzlinger, Robert Kraut, Andrew Monk, Karon MacLean, Gonzalo Ramos, Carl Gutwin, Alistair Sutcliffe, Ben Bederson, Stephen Brewster, Gerhard Fischer, Saul Greenberg, Jenny Preece, Ben Shneiderman, Bob Spence, and Harold Thimbleby. If you are an HCI researcher and you're interested in visiting, please let me know... we'll be delighted to see you.

Outside work I'm strongly compelled to oppose gravity.
