Our research environment evidences a strong commitment to the development of our community of scholars at every career stage, and an integrated approach for utilising our research for the benefit of local, national and international communities, both within and beyond the academy. The Unit has made strategic investment across two distinctive research clusters: Human-centred Computing (HCC) and Artificial Intelligence and Digital Technologies (AIDT).  

Researchers from the Unit play a central part in the University’s multidisciplinary research themes (MDRT) of Human and Digital Design and Integrated Health and Social Care. These MDRTs bring together researchers from across the University, creating unique collective expertise to deliver cutting edge and impactful research.
