I completed my PhD on Supporting Gen Y’s Engagement, Enrichment and Entertainment in Interactive Technologies in 2009 at Deakin University under the supervision of Professor Kathy Blashki. In 2011, I returned to Deakin University and the then former Faculty of Science & Technology as a Lecturer in Online Teaching and Learning before re-joining the School of IT in 2013 to commence my current role as a Lecturer in IT. My contributions and collaborations since then have been recognised with Deakin University Vice-Chancellor Awards for Teaching Excellence in 2017 and 2018, and in 2019 for excellence in offshore teaching by the Australia Education Management Group (AEMG) and the School of IT.

My previous research and work influence my teaching and research interests and activities, particuarly in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), User Experience (UX), interactive and virtual technologies, student learning and engagement and IT professional skills.
