I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), Australia, where I also co-direct the Interaction Design & Human Practice lab. With a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from the University of Melbourne, Australia, I have worked at Aarhus University, Denmark, and at the Culture Lab, Newcastle University, UK. Recently, I founded Dialogical, a design consultancy that offers a deeper approach to User-Experience (UX) design.
Through design-led research and empirically grounded qualitiative studies, my work is primarily focused upon people's experiences with technology. My research interests range from understanding the links between technology-mediated Serendipity and Creativity, to Digital Media consumption, the Internet of Things, and Social Computing. Currently, I am interested in how people might experience the Internet of Things as th vision develops over time.
I am keen to discuss supervision opportunities with talented (local and international) students considering a research higher degree, Masters or PhD in HCI/ Interaction Design. Research areas could range from Experience-Centered Design, the Internet of Things, to interactions with digital music and photos. I am most interested in how people's experiences are changed by these evolving technolgies. Go to the Me page to find my contact details.
