Dr Jason Alexander

Formerly at Lancaster University

PhD supervision

My research is in the broad area of Human-Computer Interaction. Students in my lab work on a range of topics in shape-changing interfaces, data physicalisation, and novel interaction techniques. I'm always interested in hearing from potential students keen to work in these areas.

My Role

Senior Lecturer in Human-Computer Interaction

Research overview

My primary interests are in the area of Human-Computer Interaction, with a particular interest in developing novel interactive systems to bridge the physical-digital divide. My recent work focuses on the development of shape-changing interfaces—surfaces that can dynamically change their geometry based on digital content. I also have interests in data physicalization, digital fabrication, and novel haptic interaction techniques.
