After earning a Ph.D. from Sheffield University in psychology for research in text memory and comprehension and then working as a software engineer and ergonomics consultant, Potts joined the Department of Computing faculty at Imperial College, later moving to the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation as a senior technical staff member. He joined the Georgia Tech College of Computing in 1992 as a faculty member in what is now the School of Interactive Computing. His research over the past 25 years has spanned the fields of requirements engineering, software design methods, human-computer interaction, and information privacy. All his research has been interdisciplinary and has emphasized the human element in technology design and use. He is best known for design methods that start not from technology innovation but from user needs and envisaged scenarios of use.
