My main area of research explores the use of new technologies to improve access to graphical information for those who are blind or have low vision. This includes 3D printing, low-cost electronics, and other emerging technologies.

I undertake this work as part of the department of Human-Centred Computing (HCC), in particular working within the Inclusive Technology and SensiLab subgroups. Please be sure to look at all the work that these groups are working on.

As part of these research groups, I am currently working on three main funded projects:

  1. Using 3D Printing to Improve Access to Graphics by Vision Impaired People
  2. Inclusive Gallery Experiences: Creating an Accessible Bendigo Art Gallery for Blind and Low Vision Visitors
  3. Accessible Data Exploration and Analysis for Blind People

You can also find a list of select recent publications here.

I am also currently supervising a number of research students, whose work you can read about here.
