My name is Jo Vermeulen. I am a Research Fellow in Human–Computer Interaction at the University of Birmingham. My research interests lie at the intersection of human–computer interaction (HCI) and ubiquitous computing (ubicomp).
I received my PhD in Computer Science from Hasselt University in Belgium, working with Prof. Dr Karin Coninx and Prof. Dr Kris Luyten at the EDM HCI group. My PhD dissertation investigated how to design for intelligibility and control in ubiquitous computing environments, to help users understand what is happening and allow them to intervene if necessary. Previously, I also worked on facilitating the design and development of multi-device (and cross-device) user interfaces.
