I am a design-centric HCI researcher. I am most excited when I am able to apply insights gained about people and their situations to inspire designs that are appropriate and meaningful for people. That is why my work often begins with fieldwork to produce deep understandings of people’s experiences with technology.
I understand designing as an activity to produce meaningful alternatives - alternative solutions, considerations, approaches to the current situation, that are meaningful to the target audience because it is designed with them. Furthermore, studying how people use and experience what we designed can add to a deeper understanding of particular phenomenon of interest.
I particularly also enjoy working with emergent technologies, flexing creativity to tap into their potentials to realise new, unexplored, interesting, and exciting applications for people to interact with in novel, beneficial, and hopefully transformative ways.
