Academic career

After a 1980 PhD titled 'Cognitive mechanisms of categorisation' at the University of Canterbury, Chignell moved to the University of Toronto, rising to full professor.[1]

In 2003, Chignell founded Vocalage Inc.,[2] a company that does usability consulting, outsourced research, and software development.

He participated in a 2003 experiment which gave doctors online access to medical databases through a handheld iPAQ PC, which led to changes in the decisions the doctors made.[3][4]

Chignell was the general chair of ACM Hypertext 2010.[5]
