Dr Martin Stacey is a cognitive scientist with a training in psychology and artificial intelligence. This background informs his teaching activities, which focus on human computer interaction and information design, and his research into how designers design. Martin’s research is fundamentally interdisciplinary, combining approaches from psychology, sociology, AI and philosophy and looking at comparisons between design processes in a variety of different industries. Martin’s research collaborators have included Claudia Eckert and Chris Earl (Design, Open University), John Clarkson (Engineering, Cambridge), Alan Blackwell (CS, Cambridge), Louis Bucciarelli (Engineering, MIT), and Anja Maier (Design Management, Danish Technical University).
