I am a PhD candidate in the Interaction Design Lab at The University of Melbourne. In early 2015, I joined the Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces. My supervisors are Associate Professor Martin Gibbs and Dr Wally Smith.
My (provisional) topic is “Between Cardboard and Computer: The materiality of boardgames“. I am exploring what hobbyists value about playing boardgames, and how that is realised through play.
My research is 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.
