Joanne Hinds

Research Associate, University of Bath

Joanne has a degree in Computer Science and a PhD in Psychology at the University of Manchester. In 2012, she joined the University of Bath as a Research Associate in Human-Computer Interaction.
Her research interests include group processes and computer mediated communication. Her work examines how groups solve problems, recall information and make decisions. She is fascinated by the cognitive and social factors that underlie how people interact and how technology can influence behaviour.

Her PhD examined how online communication can mitigate problems experienced by face-to-face collaborative groups. Her postdoctoral research has explored how humans make decisions when interacting with autonomous technologies focusing on complex and uncertain environments, such as emergency and disaster response.
