About the Lab

The e-Body Lab is a research lab located within the Dyson School of Design Engineering led by Dr Rebecca Stewart. The 'e' in e-Body is a placeholder for the variety of technologies and applications of our research - it ranges from electronic to embroidered to enhanced to embellished and beyond.

The lab investigates how new computing and sensing technologies can be utilised to improve the way our bodies interact with computers and the surrounding environment. We concentrate on haptic and audio-driven interactions, with a particular focus on electronic textiles (e-textiles) as a means to implement embedded wearable interfaces.
