Dr Stephen Lindsay, Department of Computer Science, is one of 30 researchers to be selected this year by the Welsh Crucible programme which organises "skills labs" for cross disciplinary collaboration in Wales
Wales Online reports on the research undertaken by Dr Lindsay, a computer science lecturer, who is studying the applications of technology for older adults and in healthcare as part of the Computer Science department's FIT Lab, Future Interaction technology.
Dr Lindsay said: "When I encounter a new piece of technology I try to imagine my gran using it and I almost never can. You can imagine some of the problems, buttons too fiddly, text too small, sounds too quiet, and even when you finally understand a new technology it often gets changed."
Now in its fourth year, the Welsh Crucible which supports research, is funded by a consortium of Welsh universities in partnership with the Higher Education Funding Council. The award-winning programme seeks to explore how the research of participants can gain greater impact through collaborations with other researchers from different disciplines and through the Welsh Crucible alumni network.
