Dr Peter Wright is Professor of Social Computing in the School of Computing Science at Newcastle University and Design Lead for UCHD.

He has published widely in interaction design and user research and is best known for his work on theory and methods for experience-centred design. His current projects focus on the design of health and social technologies. In UCHD he is interested in how an experience-centred approach to participatory design can be utilised within public sector organisations like the NHS, both as a tool for innovation and as a means of involving patients and staff more directly in the design of the services that affect them.
