I'm Sarah Wiseman and I am 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.

Public Speaking and Stand-up Comedy

I regularly get involved in Science Communication, having spoken multiple times at the Royal Institution, The Science Museum and various festivals.

I greatly enjoy science comedy, and have performed at Electro Magnetic Field along with numerous Bright Club and Science Showoff sets.


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


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