Togeva today announces that Dr. Nick Bryan-Kinns has been awarded a prestigious Royal Academy of Engineering Industrial Secondment to work with Togeva to develop lightweight methods and tools to evaluate mobile and social user interfaces. From April 2013 onwards Dr. Bryan-Kinns will be working for 8 months alongside Togeva’s mobile computing and user experience experts who are developing next generation mobile user experiences. The award – won against stiff competition from leading researchers in the UK, will enable Dr. Bryan-Kinns to continue his ground-breaking investigations into mobile collaboration, engagement and creativity.
Dr. Bryan-Kinns, a Senior Lecturer in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary, University of London, has identified that methods for evaluating user experience are often costly and time consuming, especially when they involve large numbers of end users, for example, in the social networking domain. This is particularly problematic for Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) which simply cannot afford the financial or time commitments involved in extensive user experience testing. By working with Togeva, Dr. Bryan-Kinns will develop ‘lightweight’ techniques for user experience evaluation in mobile and social interaction with SMEs. Download the Full Press Release
