I’m always looking for great students to work on research projects. I particularly encourage students from any underrepresented groups in Computer Science to talk to me about potential projects. Before you reach out, take a look at my research and publications to make sure that what you want to study is a good fit for what I do.
If you are interested in doing a PhD in the area of human-computer interaction, contact me with a copy of your CV to discuss opportunities. For more information about postgraduate research degrees at Northumbria University, visit here.
