Prof Boriana Koleva
Prof Boriana Koleva

Horizon Digital Economy Research Centre,
University of Nottingham, UK

Boriana Koleva is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham and Director of the Horizon Digital Economy Research Centre which explores the user-centred design and development of trusted data-driven products. Her research is highly interdisciplinary and focuses on designing, deploying and studying ‘in the wild’ new hybrid products, which flexibly combine physical artefacts with digital media to deliver powerful consumer experiences. She has consistently published in the leading international venues in HCI, CSCW and Ubiquitous Computing. Her work has been supported by funding from RCUK and EU. Notable projects include ‘Living With Interactive Decorative Patterns’, which brought together a team of designers, developers and a range of users to create aesthetic interactions in homes and ‘Hybrid Gifting’, which explores how the combination of physical and digital technologies can enable new forms of gift experience.
