Through research, I’m studying human-system interaction, and through design, I’m applying its teachings to improve people’s lives.
I lead user experience and design at IBM Research Australia. My work uses design methods to investigate from a human-computer interaction perspective AI systems as human partners.
In industry, I have worked across various domains (banking, healthcare, retail, legal, education), where I envisioned and collaborated with the team to design and build multi-device experiences that millions of users love.
In research, I have published at top tier conferences, receiving a best paper award. I review for various conferences and often hold a committee chair position. I enjoy inventing, learning, collaborating and mentoring, this has resulted in various patents.
Currently, in 2019, I’m in the last stretch of a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at the Exertion Games Lab, focusing on investigating intelligent like systems as human partners to inform the design of systems that support human potential. This has led to global collaborations with various leaders, resulting in workshops and publications to further the state of the art.
