The interactive technologies lab (intlab) is a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research group in the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln. Built in 2017, the Isaac Newton Building in which we are based, houses the Schools of Computer Science, Engineering and Maths and Physics, with copious resources for fostering collaboration and discussion between research groups.

HCI is a multidisciplinary field, therefore our research group unites a broad range of members with expertise in computer science, psychology and design, and involves a range of collaborations with other disciplines and universities.

The goal of intLab is to study, design and implement technologies that are usable, efficient and enjoyable, by putting people at the centre of our research. We work on a range of aspects of HCI, including designing technologies for accessibility and educational needs. Our research group also has a long-standing interest in games and playful interactive systems. We have focused on player experience in video games, the design of immersive virtual reality and augmented reality based experiences and using games as a research method. To find out more about the research projects we are leading, please see our research page.

We meet each week, have reading and writing sessions and invite speakers from our own lab and guests to present their research. If you are interested in working with us or presenting your research to us, please contact us at
