    Mail: m.rouncefield(at)lancaster.ac.uk


    Mark Rouncefield is a Senior Professor at the University of Siegen. Previously he was a Reader in Social Informatics in the School of Computing and Communications, Lancaster University and a Microsoft European Research Fellow. His qualifications include: BA (Soc St) (Exeter), MA (Ed) (Durham), MA (Soc) (Lancaster), Ph.D. (Soc) (Lancaster), PGCE, PGCIT, RSA, Salsa Level 1 (with merit) (Daniel James School of Dance). You can probably guess which qualification he is most proud of..

    Mark’s research interests are in CSCW/HCI and cover various different aspects of the empirical study of work, organisation, human factors and interactive computer systems design. This work is strongly inter-disciplinary in nature and, together with his colleagues, Dave Randall and Peter Tolmie, has led to extensive and continuing collaborations with researchers in Sociology, Computing, Informatics, Health and Management departments in the UK and abroad. His empirical studies of work and technology have contributed to critical debates concerning the relationship between social and technical aspects of IT systems design and use. He is particularly associated with the development of ethnography as a method for informing design and evaluation.
