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 producing designs that are appropriate and meaningful for people. That is why my work often begins by conducting fieldwork to produce deep understandings of people’s experiences with technology, this effort is always driven by my desire to imagine new and better designs. As such, I am most fulfilled if this understanding can be practically realised through design. Furthermore, studying this newly designed artefact in use can add to a deeper understanding of particular phenomenon of interest.
I 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.
