I am an ARC DECRA Fellow and Senior Lecturer in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, at the University of Queensland, Australia. I lead the Compassion Lab research group. Within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), my research focuses on ‘Designing for Underserved Communities’. I have ongoing projects associated with economically struggling older adults, women in crisis situations, refugees and asylum seekers, and people from the developing nations. The progress of my ARC DECRA project can be seen on our school’s webpages.

I have a PhD in Human Computer Interaction from University of Twente, the Netherlands; a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Lancaster University, UK; and an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Gujarat University, India.
