Kevin Doherty

AdAstra Assistant Professor of Human-Computer Interaction

Kevin Doherty is an ADAPT Academic Collaborator and AdAstra Assistant Professor of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at University College Dublin’s School of Information and Communication Studies. His work focuses on the design and development of new and improved health and mental healthcare technologies, including novel digital therapeutics, new means of leveraging health data to support care for chronic, co-morbid conditions, and the practice of in-situ design research for clinical and everyday impact. Kevin’s teaching and research exemplifies and advocates for a human-centred approach to digital technology targeting the areas of greatest human need, and is driven in particular by the desire to achieve a real-world impact on healthcare. Through his own, and his students’ research, Kevin seeks to transform not only how we develop but engage with and experience digital technology, often in partnership with academic, industry and clinical collaborators spanning England, Ireland, France and Denmark. Kevin is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery, ACM SIGCHI, SIGCHI Ireland and the HCI@UCD research group, regular contributor to the Informatics Europe Academic Leadership and CHI Emotionally Demanding Research communities, and holds adjunct research positions at the Technical University of Denmark and Copenhagen University.
