Researcher at Microsoft Research, Cambridge UK. Previously, The University of Queensland

I work at Microsoft Research exploring how the affordances and constraints of communication technologies interact with language, social action, and culture. I was previously a Lecturer in Strategic Communication at The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I was also a former Chair of Electronic Frontiers Australia, an advocacy group dedicated to giving voice to Australians on matters of digital access, freedom, and privacy.
