Personal profile

Research interests


Danaë Stanton Fraser is a Professor in Human Computer Interaction and leads the CREATE Lab.

Danaë’s research focuses on the design and evaluation of mobile and ubiquitous technologies for interactivity and learning. Her research interests are in tangible and ubiquitous interfaces for education and transfer of spatial skills from virtual to real spaces in research areas such as technology-enhanced learning, human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing and spatial cognition. Danaë’s work is underpinned by a process of co-design with end users and industrial partners in the development and evaluation of technologies.

 Danaë has obtained grants from the EPSRC, ESRC, AHRC, charities and industry. She is currently an investigator on the EPSRC Renew project, EPSRC Virtual Realities and an AHRC Creative Cluster. Danae has published in high-impact international journals and conferences including ACM CHI, DIS, CSCL and Ubicomp as well as in JEP Applied, Behavioural Brain Research, Ergonomics, Computers in Human Behavior and Memory and Cognition. Danae recently gave evidence at the Education Select Committee on the 4th Industrial revolution.She is a member of both the EPSRC ICT and Digital Economy Strategic Advisory Teams.

From 2010-2014 Danaë was Associate Dean for Research in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Bath. This post involves responsibility for University research strategy and includes acting as Chair of Faculty Research Committee, Membership of University Research Committee and Faculty Executive.
