I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Melbourne in the Microsoft Research Centre for Social NUI (Natural User Interfaces). My PhD research investigates the design and use of interactive technology at the zoo. 

 In recent years I have contributed to a number of research projects investigating the increasingly pervasive presence of interactive digital technologies, and the impacts of this on wellbeing, recreation, and the way we interact with others and the wider world. 

 I hold a MSc in Information Systems, and have a professional IT background, mostly in client-facing and user advocacy roles. I have worked in a range of corporate, government, academic and non-profit organisations, initially in business analysis and project management, and more recently in user research and UX evaluation.
