Professor Marcus Foth FACS

Research Students I am always looking for smart people who would like to conduct higher degree research (PhD, or Master of Design by Research) in urban informatics, human-computer interaction design, ubiquitous computing, pervasive technology, tangible media, social networks, location-based services, context awareness, mobile applications, urban design, and related topics. You are welcome to propose your own topic and discuss it with me, or consider aligning yourself with one of our lab’s current projects, or choose one of the topics that we are currently interested in.
