I am a research fellow in the Interaction Design Lab at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I work with Professor Frank Vetere in the Microsoft Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces
. I am principally a human-computer interaction researcher with specific interests in computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and social computing. My work is interdisciplinary, cutting across computer science and psychology, and has covered topics including communication technologies, virtual reality, healthcare devices, collaborative information seeking, and personal informatics.
Before coming to Melbourne I worked as a consultant researcher at the Open University, working with Dr Daniel Gooch
and Professor Blaine Price
. I now hold a visiting researcher position in the Software Engineering and Design group
. Prior to that I worked on a three-year research project entitled "Investing care and appreciating effort in the use of personal communication technologies" with Dr Leon Watts
and Daniel Gooch, at the University of Bath.
