I am an Associate Professor in Human Computer Interaction in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York. I have research interest in inclusive design for people with disabilities and older adults, and I pursue this work in areas of information seeking on the web and in games. I'm currently pursuing a research programme around user uncertainty in interactive systems. I am interested in how people get "stuck" in our interactive systems. In all of my research, I look for opportunities to improve the way we work with users, in particular in how we understand their needs and preferences, and in how evaluate systems
