Interaction design for enhanced science communication and citizen science

Science communication is typically done by scientists, but interaction designers and artists have the capacity to create for people's engagement. Technology and design for active engagement, such as embodied interaction design, can leverage people's understanding and engage them in more effective and sustainable behaviours. For example, invasive mosquitoes are one area of citizen science that poses significant risk to our environment and health in SEQ yet is little understood by the general population. Mosquito borne disease is a major killer …

Avatar customisation for diversity training in virtual reality

Avatar representation is found to be crucial for user engagement in various types of applications and user identifications with avatars. This project aims to design and develop an environment where users can customize their avatars by looking at a virtual mirror. In this project, where users will be trained in diversity awareness, it is crucial for them to feel like the character who is in the scenario. The outcome of the project will be used in experiments to test the …
