Dr Mark Dunlop

Senior Lecturer

Computer and Information Sciences

Personal statement

Dr Dunlop is a senior lecturer in computer science. His research focuses on usability of mobile systems including mobile text entry, sensor driven interaction and evaluation of mobiles. He is increasingly interested in digital health applications of mobile HCI research. His teaching is mainly in human computer interaction (HCI) and mobile programming. He leads The Mobiquitous Lab at Strathclyde, which is researching user behaviour in the context of mobile devices, ubiquitous computing, and multimodal interaction, and recently led the OATS EPSRC funded project on text entry for older adults. He has been CHI Sub-Committee Chaira, will be programme co-chair for MobileHCI 2019 and is an associate editor for Personal and Ubiquitous Computing and International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction.

Prior to joining Strathclyde, Mark was a senior researcher at Risø Danish National Laboratory and a lecturer at Glasgow University.

Mobile data collection for physical activity research
Hewitt, Allan (Principal Investigator) Dunlop, Mark (Co-investigator)
This project aims to develop a series of four applications on the iTouch platform that will allow us to collect high-quality, high-frequency data on a range of physical activity measures and related to use of the music playlist. The four applications can be run synchronously, allowing the capture of both physical and auditory activity within the mobile device.
Period 01-Nov-2010 - 31-Dec-2011
