I’m a Lecturer at the Queensland University of Technology. My main research interests are in gestural interaction and participatory design. I worked for four years at the SPIRE centre at the University of Southern Denmark in the area of Participatory Innovation. Among other things, I investigated the use of ‘provotypes’ (provocative prototypes) as ways to start conversations with stakeholders within a participatory innovation process. My PhD, which was carried out at the University of Queensland investigated the design of a gestural interface to allow dentists access to electronic patient records while undertaking a dental examination.
