Background

My personal areas of research include practice and theory into: visual communication and social practice; information visualisation/materialisation, augmented artefacts and locations; hybrid creative practices such as design for museum interaction, interactive installations and augmented reality for mobile devices.

I am also interested in how we can incorporate visual communication design practices into trans-disciplinary research teams. My practice/thesis PhD examined how the computer-based graphical user interface can be seen as a creative/cultural artefact.

My teaching focusses on:

  • visual communication design studio practice and research
  • information visualisation - data and form
  • new media installations
  • design for located media and augmented realities

Research topics for postgraduate supervision include:

  • visual communication design
  • design for located media and augmented realities
  • information visualisation - data and form
