I am a Lecturer in Human-Computer Interaction at the Research School of Computer Science at the Australian National University.
My recent work has involved conducting collaborative technology design projects in partnership with Australian Aboriginal communities.My doctoral research at the Queensland University of Technology has addressed the intergenerational co-design of tangible and social technologies to support active use of the Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal language by children and their families, in partnership with the Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council and community.
My broader projects and publications (including conference papers and a book chapter) have covered a range of topics including: designing for Indigenous language revitalisation and active language use, literacy, tangible user interfaces, public displays, temporality, participatory design methods and practices, makerspaces, and HCI education and STEM engagement.
I am a research affiliate of the Humanising Machine Intelligence project.
Currently, I am interested in the broad research themes of:
- Collaborative technology design for language revitalisation
- Co-design of machine learning applications and public engagement with AI
- Decolonial computing and the embedding of diverse and critical perspectives in the computer science curriculum
- The role of technology in sustainable and ethical living practices.

I will be recruit students at all levels for projects starting in semester 1 2021. Please keep an eye on my ANU page for more details.
