Dr Steven Houben

Formerly at Lancaster University

PhD supervision

If you are interested in doing doctoral research in the area of human-computer interaction and physical computing, feel free to contact me to discuss research opportunities. I am interested in supervising students on: (i) Multi-device or Cross-device interaction techniques, toolkits, systems and applications, (ii) Interactive spaces and spatial/proxemic interaction techniques, displays and applications, (iii) Large interactive surfaces and displays, architecture and interaction, (iv) Human-data interaction, physical data visualisations, in-the-wild deployment of physical data installations, (v) Large scale interactive systems, urban internet-of-things, (vi) sensor systems and public installation, and (vii) Interactive Systems in general.

Research Interests

My research is on Human-Computer Interaction and Computer Science. I work on topics around cross-device computing, augmented reality, and tangible user interfaces. My work combines human-centred design concepts with new systems, toolkits and interaction techniques. My PhD thesis is on activity-centric cross-device computing.

Current Teaching

For the 2017/2018 academic year, I am teaching:

SCC402: Advanced Human-Computer Interaction:

Advanced module covering advanced topics in experimental Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), with a particular focus on exploring design spaces, prototyping and developing interaction techniques.

SCC140: Creative Technologies: 

Introductory module covering general methods and concepts for user experience design and physical computing prototyping.
