Kirsten Sadler

Ph.D

Kirsten Sadler has a background in Engineering, specialising in wireless communications. After 5 years in industry Kirsten returned to University to explore the gap between the technology design world and the world of the everyday practices of technology users. Kirsten's research interests are in the area of mobile HCI. These include qualitative mobile research methods, narrative, and the social implications of technical design. In her PhD she is exploring the concept of “mobility” within the Mobile HCI literature and how this concept is currently being used to inform mobile technology design. Her research involves a series of empirical studies of the practices of freelancers in Media industries.
