Director Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces, University of Melbourne

I am the Director Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces and I lead the Interaction Design Laboratory, both at the University of Melbourne.

My expertise is in Human-Computer Interactions (HCI), with particular interests in Social Computing, Natural User Interfaces, and technologies for ageing-well.

My research aims to generate knowledge about the use and design of information and communication technologies (ICT) for human wellbeing and social benefit.

I apply human-oriented design techniques, interpretations of ethnographies, and evaluation of technologies (field-based studies and lab-based experiments) to create knowledge about the design and use of ICTs.
