I am an Associate Lecturer in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne.
I completed my PhD, titled "Between Cardboard and Computer: The hobbyist experience of modern boardgames" in the Interaction Design Lab and Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne (Supervisors: Associate Professor Martin Gibbs and Associate Professor Wally Smith). This research investigated what hobbyists value about playing boardgames, and how that is realised through play.
My research was supported by an Australian Government Research Training Scheme scholarship, as well as by a Top-Up scholarship from the Microsoft Research Centre for Social NUI.
In July 2019, I commenced a research project investigating the role of digital tools in hybrid boardgames.
I am available to supervise Masters student projects within the School. Please feel free to get in touch with your project ideas or to discuss my current projects.
