I am a design researcher based at the University of Queensland’s School of Communication and Arts. My work is primarily focused on new ways to tell public-interest stories and I see an opportunity for journalists and storytellers to play a role in inventing platforms and devices that address social goals.
The current focus of my work is understanding the possibilities of tangible interaction for public interest storytelling.
I use practice-led, design methods to understand the potential of technology and to develop storytelling prototypes, processes, and methods. I have extensive, international media experience and have won a Walkley Innovation Grant for Australian journalism innovation.
I am a member of UQ’s Human-Centred Computing research group and I lead the Design for Social Change theme within the Centre for Communication and Social Change.
