Academic Staff

Personal homepage

Stephen Snow is a Teaching Fellow at the University of Southampton. Steve worked in the environmental consulting industry before returning to academia in 2011 and has since published widely in the field of human-computer interaction. He is currently leading two undergraduate projects developing awareness systems for carbon dioxide build-up due to poor ventilation in naturally ventilated office, as well as module leader for COMP2213 Interaction Design. In a research capacity, Steve is working at the intersection of humans and technology, using low cost sensor technology to raising awareness and supporting behaviour change in energy use, ventilation practices and healthy living with digital technology.
