Peter Lyle, a member of the Urban Informatics Research Lab, in the School of Design at Queensland University of Technology is visiting our research group. His research interests sit at the intersection of computing and social interaction, with a focus on food and agriculture. Peter’s PhD study was connected to a project titled ‘Eat, Cook, Grow: Ubiquitous Technology for Sustainable Food Culture Attitudes in the City’ and in his PhD study, he focused on supporting HCI practitioners to engage with food growing communities.
Some of his representative publications are:
- Lyle, P., Choi, J.H., and Foth, M. 2013. HCI for City Farms: Design Challenges and Opportunities. In Proc. Interact 2013, 109-116.
