Research overview
  • <p><span style="font-size: 12px;">Janet van der Linden&rsquo;s research is primarily concerned with the human aspects of ubiquitous computing, exploring the interactions between people and technologies. Her approach draws on combining ethnographic in-the-wild studies of user practices with designing new technologies in areas ranging from home energy practices, health, music education and animal computer interaction. She has a particular interest in designing technologies for people with sensory impairments&ndash; with a focus on the development of novel haptic technologies, i.e. those that make use of the sense of touch, and that give feedback that people can make use of in their activities, almost as if the technology augments their senses.</span></p><p><font size="3">&nbsp;</font></p>
