I am currently a research fellow in the School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne. I am also a research project manager at MOVE muscle, bone & joint health (formerly Arthritis and Osteoporosis Victoria).
My research covers a wide range of areas, including e-Health, human-computer interaction (HCI) and information visualisation. In the e-Health discipline, I study the health information-seeking behaviour of lay-people, and make health information more findable and approachable to general users. Additionally, I am interested in how people search and explore information, and how to apply novel technologies in these scenarios. In the information visualisation area, I have analysed the content categorisation in Wikipedia using map-like visualisation and other data analytics techniques.
Apart from my work in Australia, I actively participate in a few research projects in Macau SAR. These projects aim to identify the roles and the applications of IT in different social and educational contexts.
