Fabio Morreale, PhD

Postdoctoral research assistant at
Queen Mary University of London

I have a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction and 8 years’ experience in User Experience Research (qualitative and quantitative) in the area of music and creative technologies. I coordinated numerous design projects that involved stakeholders from the tertiary, the industry, and the Arts, which resulted in the development of interactive systems, museum installations, musical interfaces, and technological applications for children. I have invented, designed, developed, and followed the distribution process of four mobile applications that are currently available on the App Store.
