John McCarthy is Professor of Applied Psychology at University College Cork. He teaches in Human Computer Interaction and Qualitative Research Methods. His research is concerned with understanding the influence of emerging social, personal, and work technologies on people’s lived experience, and using that understanding to inform design of usable and enriching technologies. His particular foci for the last few years have been on experience-centred design of technologies and services for and with people with dementia and their carers, technology to support participation in community activity and in digital civics, and responsible software design and engineering.
