Profile of Professor Effie Law

A profile of Professor Effie Law, Informatics, Leicester

Effie is the first female Professor to be appointed to the Department of ComputerDr Effie Law Science in Leicester. Since joining the department as a part-time Research Fellow in 2005, she has been promoted three times and now works full-time. Flexible-working arrangements allow her to undertake some of her research from home, so enabling her to balance child-care responsibilities.

Effie’s research interests are Usability and User Experience Methodologies, making interactive systems easy and enjoyable to use and, in case of educational technologies, enhancing the learning experience. She works on a number of European projects, which involves travelling abroad at least once a month. A number of meetings are held virtually, which makes life more flexible.

Effie’s work includes collaborations with other disciplines, which enables her to use her expertise in practical applications. This has led to several successful inter-departmental projects at Leicester that have investigated novel applications of techniques from her areas of expertise. Notable projects include the Leverhulme-funded project “Tracing Networks” with the School of Archaeology, the AHRC-funded project “Representing Re-Formation” with History of Art, Museum Studies and Physics, and ESRC-funded "Laws in Children's Lives" with the School of Law.
