I am Project Manager on the CHI+MED project, and also Visiting Professor at the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC). I am usually in at UCL two days a weeks, most commonly Tuesdays and Wednesdays but the pattern varies. The best way to contact me is by email to [] for UCLIC-related matters, or to [] for other matters. My postal address is:

UCL Interaction Centre

My telephone number there is +44 (0)20 3108 7051, but if you actually want to reach me by phone and you know my home number you'd do better to call me either at home (Cambridge) or at the St Albans flat.
