Interaction Lab Manager
Stuart is the Interaction Lab Manager at City, University of London. The Interaction Lab is a consultancy operating within the City offering human centred research and design services to both commercial and academic projects. Stuart is a hand’s on practitioner that is responsible for conducting the majority of the labs work on client projects. His role also involves business development and the practical coordination and facilitation of the labs UX projects on a day to day basis. This involves liaising with clients, coordinating participant recruitment, supporting Student Consultants and managing lab facilities.
Stuart is a commercially experienced Design Researcher / Interaction Designer adept at simplifying complicated experiences through the application of best practices in interaction design. This is supported by his practical knowledge of web technologies. Stuart is also a skilled research facilitator and adaptable to whatever situations may arise. During his career Stuart has coordinated user research for both web and mobile products. This research has taken place within labs, client sites and in-context. Stuart has experience conducting field research, e.g. shadowing, guerrilla testing and Vox Pops. He has also designed digital products from scenarios and personas through to wireframes and clickable prototypes.
Beyond the labs commercial activities Stuart is interested in speculative design. The idea of evaluating short narratives illustrating the product in use prior to investing time / resources into implementation seems like the logical next step for Interaction Design. Now he needs to convince everyone else!
