My research interests are in information systems and socio-technical analysis, specifically the determination of system requirement gathering through collaborative visual communication. My research area is particularly focused on communication using icons, signs and symbols. Other research interests are in digital engagement for marginalised communities, gender equality in STEM, Internationalization in Higher Education and student equality for the disabled.
My PhD thesis and many of my publications are focussed on a systems requirement gathering tool called the rich picture. If you are interested in knowing more about rich pictures then you might like to read my recent co-authored  book: https://www.routledge.com/Rich-Pictures-Encouraging-Resilient-Communities/Bell-Berg-Morse/p/book/9781138898738
