Dr Keith Cheverst is currently a Reader in HCI at Lancaster University where he obtained his PhD in 1999. Keith has also held the position of visiting scientist at Newcastle University’s Culture Lab, at Microsoft Research, Cambridge (working with the Socio-Digital systems group), and at the University of Melbourne (Department of Computing and Information Systems).
Keith’s primary research focus is in exploring the obdurate problems associated with the user-centred design of interactive systems in complex or semi-wild settings and the deployment and longitudinal study of these systems in order to gain insights into issues of user adoption and appropriation. He is particularly interested in interactive systems that facilitate sense of community and that comprise context-aware mobile and/or ubicomp technologies.
A long-standing member (and past chair) of the steering committee for the ACM MobileHCI conference series, Keith currently serves as the steering committee’s liaison officer to ACM ToCHI. He has served as an Associate Chair for the ACM CHI conference on three occasions and has organized and chaired numerous workshops in the areas of Mobile HCI, Situated Displays and Community Informatics.
