I am a researcher in Design and Creative Technology with a focus on social issues. In particular, my research centers around working with digitally disenfranchised communities through participatory methods. To my research I bring a multidisciplinary background designing, developing, programming and project managing digital experiences that range from web/mobile based platforms, physical computing to pervasive games. I am interested in solving real problems that benefit real people in their everyday lives. From developing games as assessment tools to open up new employment opportunities for people with cognitive disabilities to a platform for guests across the globe to share a meal. I have presented my research, game and artwork at conferences, museums and exhibitions across the globe.
