Brief Bio

Prof. Effie Lai-Chong Law is a full professor of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at the Department of Computer Science, Durham University. She obtained her PhD in psychology from the University of Munich (LMU), Germany and became a research fellow at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Since 2005, she has worked in School of Informatics, University of Leicester, UK, before joining Durham in September 2021. Her main research focus is usability and user experience (UX) methodologies with technology-enhanced learning (TEL) being a key application domain. Her recent research foci are mixed reality, multidimensional measurement of UX, multisensory emotion recognition, and conversational AI (chatbots), which have significant relevance to education, health and well-being.

Effie was the chair of two EU COST Actions on HCI design and evaluation methodologies: COST294-MAUSE and COST IC0904-TwinTide. She played a leading role in a number of EU TEL projects, including 80Days (game-based learning), ROLE (open and responsive learning environment), Go-Lab/Next-Lab (online labs), and the running ARETE (Augmented Reality Interactive Educational Systems). She was also involved in several national projects such as ESRC Law in Children’s Lives (a tablet game for assessing legal competence), STFC C3AOL (cross-cultural online collaborative learning), and the running UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS) Verifiability Node. Effie’s main contribution to these projects was applying the Human-centred Design (HCD) approaches to the design and evaluation of the bespoke technologies to ensure their use quality.

Effie has authored more than 200 peer-reviewed papers. She is serving as associate editor for two reputed journals: International Journal of Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS) and Interacting with Computers (IwC), and also a scientific co-chair of prestigious conferences such as Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI).
