Biography

Dr Holger Schnädelbach is a Senior Research Fellow in the Mixed Reality Lab (MRL), Computer Science, University of Nottingham. He received a Diploma in Architecture (DipArch) from the University of Nottingham in 1998, which was followed by a Masters in Architecture (MArch) in 1999. He was awarded a PhD by the Bartlett School of Architecture (University College London) in 2007, which was concerned with the spatial aspects of the relationship between physical and virtual environments, leading to the prototypical Mixed Reality Architecture. His work at the Mixed Reality Lab concerned the design, implementation and evaluation of interactive systems, ranging from devices to environment. This work has lead to publications in leading conferences and journals such as ACM CHI, TOCHI, CSCW, Presence and the Journal of Space Syntax. Following the award of a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (2007-2009), he was promoted to Senior Research Fellow and his now focussing on Adaptive Architecture. This work has developed a particular focus on what it means to inhabit adaptive buildings, considering the motivations, strategies and challenges that individuals, groups and organisations face when the buildings around them adapt and how adaptations influence behaviour. He is currently Nottingham Research Fellows investigating the relationship of personal data with the built environment.

Currently, I am co-supervising three PhD students (two first supervisions) in multi-discplinary supervision teams addressing topics in Adapive Architecture, adaptive user interfaces, tangible computing and stage design. I regularly supervise Human Computer Interaction BSc and MSc projects, when they fall into my research area and have in the past taught in architectural design studios at the University of Nottingham. I am personal tutor for the CS undergraduate course.

Current Research

My research concerns how we live with computing that is embedded into the built environment. This includes research into how computing enables us to influence Adaptive Architecture and how Adaptive Architecture feeds back on us. My current focus is on the relationship of human movement to that in architecture, ranging from the physiological to whole body scales. I am addressing research through the construction of studyable and deployable prototypes which enable the investigation of more practial as well as theortical questions.
