I’m Deputy Head of the Bristol Interaction Group and I lead the Mixed-Ability Interaction lab. (aka BIG::Access Lab). We are interested in designing, engineering and evaluating multisensory and cross-sensory technologies and in understanding how they can support inclusive interactions between disabled and non-disabled people across a range of domains and contexts, from education to work and leisure.
