Jason is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University. His primary research area is Human-Computer Interaction, with a particular interest in developing novel interactive systems to bridge the physical-digital divide. His recent work focuses on the development of shape-changing interfaces—surfaces that can dynamically change their geometry based on digital content or user input. Alexander's other work has investigated novel interaction techniques using eye-gaze, haptic feedback, and gestural interaction. He is always keen to hear from enthusiastic prospective Ph.D. students or post-docs wishing to work in these areas.
He was previously a post-doctoral researcher in the Bristol Interaction and Graphics (BIG) group at the University of Bristol. Before that he was a Ph.D. student in the HCI and Multimedia Lab at the University of Canterbury.
