I am a Senior Lecturer and ARC Future Fellow in the School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne, in the Human-Computer Interaction research group. My research is broadly concerned with understanding the role technologies play in people's learning, work, and social activities. My recent work has focused on:
New survey: Technologies for enrichment and connectedness during Covid-19
As part of my Future Fellowship research, I am conducting a survey and interview study to learn how people working in residential and community aged care have used technology to help older adults stay connected during the Covid-19 restrictions. This builds on earlier research, conducted prior to Covid-19, and will lead to guidelines to inform future effective use of technology for social enrichment in aged care.
If you are a care worker and have had experience supporting older adults to stay connected during Covid-19, please consider sharing your insights via the short survey. Thank you!
Technology for supporting care
I was recently interviewed by the Australian Ageing Agenda about how technology can be used to support aged care.
