Professor Peter Gregor
Peter is Director of the Digital Media Access Group.
Peter is also the Dean of the School of Computing at the University of Dundee. Peter has B.Sc and M.A. degrees in Psychology, and worked for many years in Community Education, where he promoted the empowerment of disadvantaged groups of all ages and ability levels. In addition to research in accessibility, computer-based interviewing, and applications for older people, he teaches human computer interaction, usability engineering and programming.
Dr. David Sloan
David co-ordinates the Group's research activities.
David has overseen the production of a variety of publications by DMAG on various issues on accessibility and usability; he has spoken on accessibility issues at several conferences and seminars, in the UK and around the world. He has a particularly keen interest in how accessible design can be reconciled with the creative demands of the "new media" industry, while other interests include accessibility and e-learning.
David's PhD thesis, which he completed in the summer of 2006, was concerned with how the accessibility audit can be used to motivate and support web designers in developing a better understanding of web accessiblity issues. David also holds an MSc (Distinction) in Applied Computing and, prior to his work with DMAG, was a digital cartographer with Bartholomew/HarperCollins Cartographic in Glasgow.
Lorna leads the Business Development of the Group.
Lorna's primary role is the co-ordination of our services and as such she is usually the first point of contact for clients. Lorna has a particular interest in the development of accessible sites and how accessibility can be intregrated to the design process rather than added on at the end.
Lorna is a BSc graduate from the School of Computing.
Graeme joined DMAG in July 2007. He has a BA (Hons) in Accounting and an MSc in Applied Computing. He is currently writing up his PhD thesis in the School of Computing.
Graeme's main interests are multi-media authoring, accessibility and usability.
Louise graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Applied Computing is currently studying for a part-time PhD. She believes that creativity doesn't have to be compromised when producing accessible websites and is particularly interested in the design and development of multimedia sites which look great while being accessible to all.
