I am a PhD candidate in the Interaction Design Lab in the School of Computing and Information Systems 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.

I submitted my PhD thesis for examination in October, 2018.

My title is "Between Cardboard and Computer: The hobbyist experience of modern 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.
