Dr. Clare Hooper

Research Engineer at IT Innovation
HCI, User Experience, Web Science


I work as a Research Engineer at the University of Southampton's applied computer science research centre, IT Innovation. My research interests include human-computer interaction (HCI), hypertext and web science. Within HCI, I focus on user experience and experience-oriented design, particularly considering contexts such as ubiquitous computing, multimodal interaction and accessibility.

Early in my career I developed a method for analysing, designing and evaluating experiences (TAPT), as well as a hyperfiction system called Storyspinner. I currently work on a variety of projects in the areas of the future internet and web science.

I enjoy the challenge of interdisciplinary work and combining qualitative and quantitative methods -- which is handy, given the complexity of working in subjective areas such as user experience.
