Prof. Tom Rodden, University of Nottingham
Tom Rodden is Professor of Interactive Systems at the Mixed Reality Laboratory (MRL) at the University of Nottingham and Director of Equator. Prof Rodden’s research focuses on the development of new technologies to support users within the real world and new forms of interactive technology that emerge from mixing physical and digital interaction. This is a multi-disciplinary endeavour bringing together researchers in behavioural and social sciences and those involved in systems engineering, network infrastructures and interactive systems design. This ranges from those with a background in anthropology to those with training in art&design and embrace technologists from software development to the construction of novel hardware. He has published widely in the areas of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), HCI and Ubiquitous computing. Since 2001 he has been director of the Equator IRC that brings together 8 different research institutes in the UK. The Equator IRC is a six-year programme of research to explore new technologies that interweave the physical and digital worlds supported by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
