Digital media, location awareness, and the politics of geodata

This project critically examines the increasingly pervasive role of location metadata (or geodata) in Australian smartphone practices and cultures and the implications this has for users, industry, and public administration.With near-ubiquitous levels of smartphone use in Australia, digital media have become integrated within everyday lives. These services, however, rely on access to an individual's location, raising privacy and cybersecurity concerns over this sensitive datapoint.This project adopts design research to develop design artefacts to enhance public understanding of geodata and privacy, …

Decision modelling to overcome intergenerational discounting

This project aims to address a key obstacle to climate action: intergenerational discounting, a phenomenon that explains the tendency for people to prefer smaller benefits for themselves now, rather than larger benefits for future generations. Intergenerational discounting becomes even more problematic due to a growing global population and increasingly intensive use of natural resources.In this project, we follow the design science approach and aim to establish design principles necessary for decision modelling to overcome intergenerational discounting and achieve genuine and …

Participatory Visualisation of Smart City Data

This PhD project will be affiliated with FrontierSI and Value Australia and contribute to its goals and objectives around smart cities, digital twins, and automated land valuations. Although consumers contribute much of the data upon which these smart city technologies operate, its systems often remain opaque black boxes closed off to public understanding, scrutiny and control. There are also serious concerns around privacy and loss of autonomy.This PhD project addresses these issues by exploring new methods for the participatory visualisation …

Rhythm & Movement for Self-Regulation in early childhood: digital design and research translation

Rhythm & Movement for Self-Regulation (RAMSR) is a program developed by registered music therapists, and early childhood specialists, that teachers all adults working with young children to engage in rhythmic movement activities known to build brain architecture that supports self-regulation. Essentially, RAMSR seeks to bring the brain-building benefits associated with learning music to the masses in early childhood.In 2016 and 2020, RAMSR studies showed the program was indeed effective in stimulating growth in attentional, emotional, and behavioural regulation for young …
