Keen to design the solutions that will bring the world better health and wellbeing? Fascinated by mobile, pervasive, ubiquitous, tangible, incredible, interactive technology? May wish to explore how to blend data, ai, cog sci, sports sci, computer sci, sensors, a fish, everything and anything - please email me and
We are moving the science, engineering and design of Wellth into the World - for good.
prof m.c. schraefel, phd,fbcs, ceng, cscs (lower case deliberate).
Professor of Computer Science and Human Performance, Fellow, british computer society, Research Chair, Royal Academy of Engineering, Chartered Engineer.
Head, Agents Interaction and Complexity Group And now a wee bit more: Deputy Head of Department, Research, and current REF champion (for those in the UK) for CS.
Wellth Lab Research FOCUS - How to design information systems to support the brain-body connection for lifetime quality of life, including, fitness to learn, fitness to play, fitness to perform optimally, always; to understand through these paths how to enhance innovation, creativity and discovery.
A few very short papers that might help contextualise these aspirations are
Related Work - interaction design for data-driven (vs document driven) web-based systems for knowledge building. /p>
Other Quals: I'm a certified and practicing strength and conditioning coach (CSCS), kettlebell instructor (RKC II, SFG II, KFF CKT), a certified nutrition coach (Pn1) and, particularly germaine to the research, a movement coach (CK-FMS, ZHealth Master Trainer). I *may* be the first computer scientist to draw blood - for science, of course.
If you're a prospective grad student, and this area of work sounds appealing, please see the Students FAQ page.
If you'd like a three minute overview of Human-Systems Interaction Research (and a quick tutorial on how to deadlift and swing a kettlebell):

Practical Quality of Life As part of my interest in designing systems to support & enhance Quality of Life, i've been exploring how to encourage 20-something grad student desk bound geeks to think about health and fitness. Hence the IAMGeekFit site, and my various certifications. I'm pleased to say my pull up count is above 1.
Favorite Computer Tool Besides all things Web and of course flying toasters, spell checkers. Computers can help us communicate. Spell checkers prove it.
