Abstract

Biography

I am Co-Director of the Wearable Computer Lab at the Australian Research Centre for Interactive and Virtual Enviroments (IVE) and a senior lecturer at UniSA STEM. I am an expert in immersive technologies including Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. I was a key researcher on the Narrative Visualisation for Law Enforcement project with the Data to Decisions Cooperative Research Centre. This project won the South Australian Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) iAward for R&D Project of the Year and a merit at the national level. The technology has since been acquired by a commercial venture to take to market. I am a Chief Investigator on a successful Australian Research Council Discovery Project ("Parametric VR: An Interactive Virtual Reality System for Parametric Design", AU$455,000). I won the 2021 UniSA STEM Early Career Researcher award and the 2021 IVE Recognition Award for Innovation, Value, and Enterprise.
