My area of expertise lies in understanding how perceptual, cognitive and affective processes shape how people work with spatial information, including in the form of maps or other information visualisations. I do empirical work with spatial information users to identify ways to design better maps and other representations of spatial information.
I am a broadly trained geographer and I have also undertaken applied geospatial research in the domains of transportation (visualising road/rail interactions for a future with autonomous vehicles), history (spatiotemporal analysis of Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War), hazards (bushfire, cyclones, floods), health geography (impacts of time scarcity on health), land use/land cover change, and gender inequality (in access to international higher education).
