John is a consultant, writer and reviewer, focusing on psychological aspects of IT application design and use. He has a PhD in Experimental Psychology and is a Chartered Psychologist of the British Psychological Society. He is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Informatics, Umeå University.

“I have researched the psychological impact of human-computer interaction and its design for more than 30 years, while living and working in the UK, Singapore, and Sweden. With almost 200 publications to my name I am perhaps best known for work on topics such as information exploration, IT and ageing, the sense of presence and creativity in mediated environments.”

“I am interested in new ways in which information technologies can be designed and applied to enhance health and life quality for a wide range of individuals: in everyday life, in clinical settings and in other specific circumstances. In addition to my own research, I review project proposals and progress, and provide consultancy services to a range of organizations.”
