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.
