His research involves designing and evaluating technology interventions as well as studying the user experience and social impact of digital technologies. He is a part of a team at Melbourne, Stanford and University College London studying how people use technologies such as smartphones to shape their emotions in daily life.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
