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, conversational agents, refreshable displays, and other emerging technologies.

I undertake this work as part of the Inclusive Technologies research lab, within the department of Human-Centred Computing (HCC) in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University. Please be sure to look at all the work that these groups are working on.

I am currently working on three main funded projects (as well as numerous others with my PhD students and other collaborators):

  1. Using 3D Printing to Improve Access to Graphics by Vision Impaired People (ARC Linkage)
  2. Inclusive Gallery Experiences: Creating an Accessible Bendigo Art Gallery for Blind and Low Vision Visitors (Helen Macpherson Smith Trust)
  3. Accessible Data Exploration and Analysis for Blind People (ARC Discovery)

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.
