Professor Kirsten Cater


I have worked, managed and published internationally in a broad range of research areas including human computer interaction, computer graphics, psychology and pervasive computing. My research is concerned with designing elegant solutions for delivering the maximum user experience from devices with limited processing capability by using knowledge of human-computer interaction. My emerging research profile in computer graphics, ubiquitous computing and compelling experience design complements and strengthens the activities of the Interaction and Graphics Research Group. I have undertaken public engagement research in primary and secondary schools, as well as community centres with both young and adult learners. I am a firm believer in the value of user participation to guide the future of technology and technological experiences and use my technical expertise to foresee and design possible future applications in these fields.
