Research laboratories

Laboratories are the homes of our specialist groups of researchers who work together around a specific interest or related goal. From interaction analytics to web ergonomics specialists, labs are where the research gets done and our scientists collaborate.


The e-Science lab researches and develops tools and techniques designed to "help e-Scientists get on with science, and get on with scientists".

Interaction Analysis and Modelling Lab

The IAM lab is interested in how users interact with online materials and how the web, through its design, technology and infrastructure, enables users to interact with it. The lab works at the cutting edge of usability and accessibility research, with expertise in psychology and web technologies.

Automation Lab

The 'Robot Scientist' is the centre of an automated wet lab and runs experiments using artificial intelligence  to run cycles of hypothesis forming and testing, for instance, in neglected tropical diseases.
