Andrew Monk

Visiting Professor

I am currently undertaking research into what people want from the technology in their homes. A particular interest is technology to maintain the independence of older people, e.g., banking for the over 80s, help with activities of daily living for people with dementia and mainstream assistive technology.

I have a long history in usability research, particularly lightweight methods for use by designers and videoconferencing. I am Professor of Psychology at York University, Director of CUHTec, and a Fellow of the British Computer Society. I was Chair of the British HCI Group from 1997-2001 and have been active in the ACM Sig CHI, being elected to the ACM CHI Academy in 2005.
