I'm a lecturer in the Information Environments Program (IEP) and researcher in the Interaction Design research division here in the school of ITEE.

My research and teaching focus on people centred design methods, particularly applied to the design of social, domestic and ubiquitous computing technologies and understanding people in context. My work aims to inform and inspire design through working in multidisiplinary teams. I have over 15 years' experience in HCI/CSCW research where I have focused on bridging between multiple disciplines and perspectives. I have concentrated on qualitative methods, particularly observational fieldwork, contextual interviews, diary studies and field trips, but also increasingly on more ‘designerly' approaches such as cultural probes, technology probes, low fidelity prototypes, rapid prototyping and sketching.
