Research interests

Using empirical methods to improve and innovate in:

  • Health Science and Medicine
  • Creative Media and Television
  • Knowledge Representation and Software Engineering

Caroline's research focuses on software engineering and human-computer interaction, combining her expertise in computer science and psychology.

She is interested in interaction modelling, particularly in challenging situations: in the wild; when the user's task is unknown; when more than one device is in use.

She is currently working with the BBC as PI of Implicit Device Interaction project (EP/M017133/1) and CI of the Synchronised Attention knowledge exchange project (EP/K503782/1-RMS99537).
