I am Sarah Wiseman and I'm a Lecturer of Computer Science at Goldsmiths, University of London.


I conduct research in the field of Human Computer Interaction, often working to collect data from participants. My areas of interest are Emoji, Errors, Data Entry, Immersive Theatre and Citizen Science.


I have worked with the YouTube channels Numberphile and Computerphile to create videos on the subjects of HCI and number entry.


Making things is fun. Especially if they're ridiculous.
