Marguerite Barry is assistant professor at the School of Information & Communication Studies at UCD, programme director for the MSc in Communication & Media and co-founder of the Human-Computer Interaction research group HCI@UCD.
I am a funded investigator with ADAPT, the SFI Research Centre for AI Driven Digital Content Technology, conducting research into autonomy and responsibility in transparent digital governance. My research currently focuses on creative and practical approaches for supporting ethical design and development of digital technologies. Recent published work includes social expectations and public communication of ethics and AI, ethical design for technologies to support mental health and ethics and computing for secondary school curricula. My interests are in developing a deeper understanding of digital interaction for better and more human-centred communication design.
