Dr. Santiago Martinez

Associate Professor
University of Agder

My research focusses on user-centred design and usability. My background is Computing Engineering and I have been working in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) for the last 9 years. In 2009, I was awarded the Alison Armstrong Research scholarship for my PhD in HCI in the University of Abertay, UK, where I worked in a interdisciplinary environment with Psychologists, Sociologists and Health professionals. I am focused on how to involve users without Information and Telecommunication Technology (ICT) experience, such as the occasional, first-time, and disabled, in the design and evaluation of solutions for them. I have developed specific methodologies for my research, and worked with a wide range of the established ones, such as Participatory Design, User-Centered Design and Ethnography.In the private sector, I have experience in working in the Health Public Sector in Spain in a multy-strategy IT consulting company (Everis Spain Ltd.). In the UK, working in a visualisation project for NCR Global Ltd and on consumer testing on a range of different visualisation and interaction projects. I have co-organised HCI workshops in UK, Spain, Norway and Netherlands to disseminate my research findings and also to raise the awareness of an inclusive design approach in ICT. As part of that dissemination process, I have given several talks to specialised audience (industrialists, policy makers, educationalists) and general public.
