Lucia Rapanotti


My main research focuses on the development of design theories, methods and tools to help people tackle complex real-world problems, whether in the development of software, systems, processes or other artefacts. With Dr Jon G. Hall, also in the Computing and Communications department, I have invented the Problem Oriented Engineering (POE), a design theoretic problem solving framework.

I also research infrastructures to support disperse research communities and the apprenticeship of new researchers mediated by online technology.

In my scholarship I aim to make learning Computing in schools and academia more effective and relevant for students, employers and society at large.

I supervise research projects at MSc, Phil and PhD levels.
