Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Joanna Lumsden (PhD) is a senior lecturer/researcher in the School of Engineering & Applied Sci­ences at Aston University (Birmingham, UK) where she also manages the Aston Interactive Media (AIM) Lab. Prior to moving to Aston University in 2009, Joanna was a researcher with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the designer and lab manager for a state-of-the-art mobile human computer interaction (HCI) evaluation lab within the NRC facility. Joanna is also an adjunct professor with the Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of New Brunswick (Canada). She obtained her BSc in software engineering (Hons) from the University of Glasgow (Scotland, 1996), where she also later achieved her PhD in HCI in 2001. Her research interests and expertise are mainly in mobile HCI and associated evaluation techniques. She has served on program committees for several international HCI/general computer science conferences and was also editor of the Handbook of Research on User Interface Design and Evaluation for Mobile Technology.
