Professor Luigina Ciolfi

Professor of Human Centred Computing


Summary

I am Human-Centred Computing scholar investigating human interaction with digital technologies, collaborative and cooperative computing, participation in design, mobility and nomadicity. I have done extensive work internationally in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and cultural heritage technologies. My work is at the intersection of computing, social science and design.



About

I research how digital technologies mediate human interaction, and how people and groups use and experience these tools in their everyday lives. I have studied a variety of domains for technology design and use, including museums and other heritage sites, urban environments, transitional spaces such as airports, and nomadic work. I contribute to the academic fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW).

My current research is exploring participatory processes for the design and evaluation of digital technologies for cultural heritage; strategies and requirements for the technological support of dialogue and debate around heritage; and the complexities of mobile knowledge work, particularly when utilising collaborative digital technologies.

I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Limerick, (Ireland) and a Laurea in Communication Sciences (summa cum laude) from the University of Siena (Italy) specialising in Human-Machine Interaction. Prior to joining SHU, I worked as lecturer in Interaction Design at the University of Limerick, visiting professor at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, and research assistant at the University of Siena.

 I led and participated in many national and international funded research projects, and I have authored over 100 peer-reviewed publications. I regularly review for many conference and journals, and I have been an expert scientific evaluator for research funding agencies in five countries and for the European Commission. I am an experienced supervisor and examiner of postgraduate research internationally and have been an invited speaker in ten countries.

I serve as Associate Editor and Book Review Editor for the CSCW Journal (Springer) and other notable service roles include: general chair, ECSCW 2017; Subcommittee Chair, ACM CHI 2018-2019; papers co-chair for ACM CSCW 2015; scientific co-chair COOP 2014; Associate Chair for ACM CHI 2013-2016; member of the Steering Committee of EUSSET - The European Society for Socially-Embedded Technologies, 2016-2018; member of the Steering Committee of ACM CSCW, 2017-present. I am a Senior Member of the ACM.

Media

Human-Computer Interaction researcher Professor Luigina Ciolfi is interested in how interacting with digital technologies shapes people’s lives. She also studies how communities use technology to interact and work together. She has conducted research into interactive exhibitions, how work changes through mobile and social media, and online interaction between fans of the fictional world created by Harry Potter author J K Rowling. Luigina is now working on projects to help museums engage online and offline with communities at risk of marginalisation, and to understand the challenges of "digital nomads" working independently in a variety of spaces.
