Lukas Hughes-Noehrer


Personal profile


I'm an interdisciplinary HCI researcher in the Department of Computer Science with a focus on healthcare technologies and clinical applications. I'm interested in fostering human-computer interaction to investigate the applicability and usability of algorithmic outputs in various settings, addressing trust issues, testing new strategies, and the policies of their future use in a technically informed society. I'm further a Research Ethics Reviewer and group organiser at the Alan Turing Institute, where I co-lead the AI, Arts and Creative Industries Interest Group. I'm also the University of Manchester's School of Engineering Open Research Lead and I hold an Honorary Research position at the Anaesthesia and Critical Care Department/Clinical Data Science Unit at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.
