Personal profile

Research interests

Stuart is currently working on three research projects at the Centre for Innovation, focused in the field of Human Computer Interaction.

Tangible user interfaces with children in care and adopted children

Stuart is a research associate on this project, involved in researching and developing digital technologies to support children in care and adopted children with the process of life storying, a method for addressing past life events and developing the self. The team have been undertaking participatory design workshops to understand the differences in context and requirements of children in a range of care environments.

Environmental enrichment for gorillas

Stuart is principal investigator on a project seeking to support the cognitive enrichment of gorillas in captivity through the design of innovative digital tools and games. The project is a collaboration between the University of Bristol and Bristol Zoo. The team are currently conducting a literature review of animal-computer interaction and research investigating the use of technology to facilitate more effective communication between animals and humans. The project plan is to create game(s) which can cognitively enrich the environment of gorillas in zoos and encourage cross-species play.

Vision Game Labs secondment

For a few days a week, Stuart is also seconded to a serious games startup company, Vision Game Labs, who are developing games to assist in the diagnosis of eye disease in children. Stuart's role is to improve the serious game's design through user-centred design processes.
