Professor Andrew Monk, University of York
My current research is to understand what people want from the technology in their homes. A particular interest is technology to maintain the independence of older people, e.g., banking for the over 80s, help with activities of daily living for people with dementia and mainstream assistive technology.

I have a long history in usability research, particularly lightweight methods for use by designers and videoconferencing.
I am Emeritus Professor of Psychology and Director of CUHTec at the University of York, visiting Professor at Culture lab, Newcastle University and was a Fellow of the British Computer Society. I was elected to the CHI Academy in 2005. I took my pension in October 2010 but am still working in this area.
