Professor Duncan Brumby's Inaugural Lecture announced!

Professor Duncan Brumby will be giving his inaugural lecture on 22 June 2022. He will explore the topic of 'Digital Distraction'. Our daily activities are constantly punctuated by interruptions, and maintaining focus can be challenging. Professor Brumby will discuss the results of his and other colleagues' research aimed at understanding how people multitask and manage digital distractions. To investigate this question different research methods and approaches have been used, from controlled lab experiments, to situated observational studies, and online studies with crowdsourcing platforms. The results of this research give insights into how people can better manage digital interruptions, and how systems can be better designed to help people maintain focus.
