Stefan Rennick Egglestone

Stefan Rennick-Egglestone is a lecturer and research fellow in the Mixed Reality Laboratory at the University of Nottingham. He has worked on a broad variety of projects relating to culture and history, and is currently engaged in the Lace Market are of Nottingham, where he is exploring the use of technology to collect and share memories and experiences relating to St. Mary’s Gate, a historic street with a 1000 year history. Alongside cultural research issues, Stefan is also engaged with research into the use of technology to support recovery from mental health problems, and has recently conducted a qualitative study involving the recruitment of users of technology provided by the UK National Health Service. Much of his research is constructed around the application of participatory design methods. As well as the traditional use of these methods to engage users in the process of design, he is also exploring their application as a qualitative research tool in situations that require participants to develop an active understanding of a particular context and their reaction to it.
