Information science, my professional background, determines a paradigma and way I investigate and research such a complex issues as reading in digital age is. Information science field covers topics like communication of information encoded into documents of various kind (print and digital obviously), information behaviour or social informatics. In terms of methods I focus more on interpretative paradigm. My fundamental mindset consists of phenomenology and hermeneutics thoughts introduced by Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty. More concretely, I use Interpretative phenomenological analysis as a tool for discovering reading experience on tablets in my dissertation theses. My second professional interest is Human-computer interaction, which I teach at the university. I found many insights of HCI and design practices can be used while prototyping or evaluating new reading app for instance. Regarding E-READ project I spent one month on STSM with Matt Hayler in Birmingham (May 2015). If you are interested, check my curated magazin called Psychology and Cognitive Aspects of Reading at this link. You can find me on Twitter here.
