Simon Robinson, PhD

Lead Computer Science Consultant
Girl-talk-Girl Program

Simon is a consultant for Footage Foundation and the Girl-talk-Girl Program as well as a Research Officer at Swansea University, UK. Simon is passionate about the human side of mobile interaction, and has spent the past eight years arguing for heads-up and real world-focused approaches that put people first, rather than technology.

His recent book: “There’s Not an App for That: Mobile User Experience Design for Life”, with Gary Marsden and Matt Jones explores in detail how we can create these types of interactions, rather than mobiles that get in the way of everyday life.
