  • Graham Pullin
Summary

Graham Pullin is an interaction designer and author of ‘Design Meets Disability’ (The MIT Press, 2009 – out in paperback October 2011) which argues for a blurring of the boundaries between assistive technology and design in general.

He is course director of Digital Interaction Design at the University of Dundee, where his research involves exploring new interactions with synthesised speech, in particular how subtle nuances of tone of voice might be conceived and controlled – and by someone who isn’t an expert in speech technology! (This obsession may be a result of having seen My Fair Lady at a too impressionable age.) Previously, he ran a studio at IDEO design consultancy, worked at the Bath Institute of Medical Engineering and has studied at the Royal College of Art and Oxford University.
