Dr. David Coyle

Funded Investigator

Personal Sensing

I work mainly in Human Computer Interaction. The overall goal of my research is to design systems that help to address important societal challenges, in particular healthcare and sustainability.

My current work has a strong interdisciplinary focus, with several broad themes:

  • User Experience: I am developing new techniques to understand the experience of agency when interacting with novel technologies, including intelligent and on-body interfaces.
  • Health technologies: I have projects investigating the use of games and mobile devices in mental health interventions and lead the user-centred design activities in two large health technology projects, SPHERE and the IEU.
  • Crowdsourcing and information visualisation: Other projects are investigating crowdsourcing and visualisation to support environmental activism and safety critical navigational tasks.
