She combines dance, design, human computer interaction and the aesthetics of interaction to critique and produce concepts, systems and performances. She has a background in design, human-computer interaction and software engineering, with extensive experience as a lecturer and researcher. She is an Associate Professor in the Design Lab, School of Architecture, Design and Planning, University of Sydney, Australia, and Director of the Master of Interaction Design and Electronic Arts program.
