I work in human-computer interaction, specializing in health. I have helped to design and evaluate technology interventions for youth and adult mental health, for carers of people with disabilities, for smoking cessation and behaviour change, for new parents and parents-to-be, and for children in long-term hospital treatment. I study how people use digital technologies, drugs and other tools to manage their emotions. I work to co-design technologies with Indigenous communities.
