Jason is a Research Assistant in the Intelligent Interactive Systems group, lead by Dr Per Ola Kristensson. Jason is interested in a wide variety of research topics including crowdsourcing, software development, ubiquitous computing, and interface design. His current work involves the investigation and application of mobile crowdsourcing.
Jason is awaiting completion of his PhD studies at the University of Cambridge, as member of the Intelligent Interactive Systems research group, supervised by Dr Per Ola Kristensson and undertook the first two years of his PhD study at the University of St Andrews, as a member of the SACHI research group.
Crowdsourcing is a technique allowing data and services to be obtained from large groups of people. Jason's research focuses on the applications of crowdsourcing in an online environment with particular interest in how work can be made more enticing and workers made more efficient.
