Biography

Dr Ilyena Hirskyj-Douglas is a Lecturer in the School of Computing Science and a member of the Glasgow Interactive SysTems (GIST) research section. Having been one of the early founders of the Animal-Computer Interaction field, Ilyena is a pioneering expert in methods and building technologies for animals. Her research builds novel devices for animals to use computers, investigating how animals use these devices and how we can design and build methods to capture this interaction. Ilyena leads the Animal-Computer Interaction group at Glasgow.

Ilyena mainly publishes work with her dog, Zack, whom you will see in most of her publications. She has published 20+ peer-reviewed publications, focusing on screen devices for dogs, music and visual systems for monkeys and dog internet systems. She publishes in computer science and animal journals and conferences such as CHI, IJHCS, ISS, CSCW, Animal Behaviour and Cognition and Animals.
