Designing Technologies for Managing Responsive Behaviour: A User Centred Approach
is an Assistant Professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland in College Park. Her research focuses on the ways that technologies position and support individuals with dementia.
Austin L. Toombs
is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Graphics Technology at Purdue University. He studies the impact that digital technologies have on how communities develop, are maintained, and foster (or not) the development of strong interpersonal relationships, including how those technologies are implicated in explicit and implicit forms of care.
is a Career Research Fellow at Open Lab at Newcastle University, where she leads the Digital Social Care theme. Her research explores how the collaborative and sensitive design of new technologies can uncover tensions at the intersection of health and politics, particularly in ageing and dementia.
is a Researcher at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS); Design United Research Fellow at University of Technology, Eindhoven (TU/e), Netherlands; Honorary Reader in Design for Ageing and Dementia at Cardiff Metropolitan University, Wales, UK; and Visiting Fellow at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Sydney (MAAS). She has published in journals including Continuum, Media International Australia, Textile: Cloth and Culture and Leonardo. Her research explores creative inclusive approaches to design for dementia and how technology can support older people and people living with dementia.
is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo and the Schlegel Research Chair in Technology for Independent Living at the Research Institute for Aging. Jennifer is engaged in the collaborative creation of a wide variety of technologies that support independent aging, well-being, and quality of life, with a focus on supporting people living with dementia and their care partners.
is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial Design at the University of Technology Eindhoven. His studies revolve around design (research) for active and healthy ageing, with a specific focus and interest for dementia. In this research, he focuses on inclusive design processes, suitable (interaction) design and multi-stakeholder involvement. He aims to perform research as much as possible in the field, by applying Living Lab methodology.
