Chris Baber completed his PhD in 1990. This was on speech recognition and was from Aston University's Applied Psychology Unit. Following this, he joined the Ergonomics Group at University of Birmingham to lecture on the MSc Work Design and Ergonomics programme. In 1999, he moved from the School of Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering to the School of Electrical Engineering (partly in connection with his research on wearable computers and partly to help develop new programmes in Human-Centred Computing). He was made full Professor in 2013 and become Head of School shortly after this. In 2019 he moved to the School of Computer Science (this time to lecture on Human-Computer Interaction and Mobile & Ubiquitous Computing, and because of his research on human-machine teaming).
