Research / Scholarly interests

My research interests focus on Human-Centred Systems. I am particularly interested in the design of interactive systems for real-world use that are centred around novel ways of communicating with the user, innovative ways to access and interact with information, and with a focus on promoting health and well-being. More recently, I have been working within the areas of Gamification and accessibility design.

I'm interested to supervise projects related to Human-Computer Interaction and Gamification research and relevant topics within those areas are particularly welcome
