Research Overview

Professor Quigley is the Chair of Human Computer Interaction in the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. His research interests include surface and multi-display computing, human computer interaction, pervasive and ubiquitous computing and information visualisation. He is the Deputy Director and Director of Knowledge Exchange of the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance. He directs SACHI, the St Andrews Computer Human Interaction research group. He has published over 120 internationally peer-reviewed publications including edited volumes, journal papers, book chapters, conference and workshop papers and holds 3 patents. He was previously the director of the Human Interface Technology Laboratory Australia (HIT Lab AU) and has held academic and industry appointments in Australia, Japan, USA, Germany, Ireland and the UK.  He is currently the Editor-In-Chief for the Journal Computers and an external member of the IDEAS Research Institute Executive Committee in Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen where he holds a visiting Professorship. He has graduated 4 PhDs, 2 MSc, 11 Minor MSc students and over 17 honours students. His research and supervision has been funded by the SFC, JISC, SFI, NDRC, IRCSET, NICTA, Smart Internet CRC, IBM, Microsoft and the EU (FP7 and FP6). He is a Chartered Fellow of the British Computer Society (BCS), a senior member of the IEEE, a member of the ACM and a recipient of a National Institute of Engineers Australia award for excellence in engineering education. He is the general co-chair for UIST 2013 and ITS 2013 (in St Andrews in Oct 2013), MobileHCI 2014 in Toronto and is the Program Chair for PerDis 2014.
