Andy Cockburn is a Professor of Computer Science and Software Engineering at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. His research interests are in Human Computer Interaction (HCI), with a focus on improving human performance with computer systems by understanding and exploiting underlying human factors. Key problems that he has worked on include improving mechanisms for navigating within electronic documents (e.g., scrolling and zooming), navigating between electronic documents (e.g., file retrieval, window switching and web navigation), command activation (e.g., menus and hotkeys), and interfaces that facilitate transitions to expertise. He is a fan of spatially stable user interfaces and of rigorous experimental research validation.
