Christopher Bull

I am a Research Associate, and have a Ph.D from Lancaster University.

My current research focus is in medical informatics, specifically the early detection of dementia through passive monitoring of elderly computer users. This is done by developing novel monitoring tools and performing various text and data mining on logged activity to ascertain any differences in user's patterns of usage over time.

My PhD research is focused on exploring design studios in education (from a variety of areas: architecture, product design, art etc.), and how aspects of the environment can be transferred across to Computer Science education; this involves looking at co-located developers during design and implementation phases of software projects (inspired by my Masters Thesis — CoffeeTable). This also relates to my main broad interest of collaboration in software development teams.

I was part of the first cohort of the HighWire DTC. My background is in Computer Science and Software Engineering, but have been immersing myself in the Design discipline and exploring how Design and Computing cross. I have a wide and varied interest in many areas of Computer Science including software engineering (in a broad sense), software project management, education in computer science/software engineering, HCI and web development. I have also dabbled in Management Science and Project Management.
