Fertility After Cancer Predictor (FoRECAsT)

2019-present

This is a collaboration with Dr Michelle Peate at the University of Melbourne and others. Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in reproductive aged women and many women are diagnosed before they have started or completed their families. These women then need to deal with the consequences of treatment, such as potential infertility. Thus, being able to provide women with information about how their fertility will be affected by treatment is important. This can help them to make decisions around fertility preservation prior to starting adjuvant treatment. The aim of this study is to develop an online fertility predictor targeted at young women with breast cancer. This tool will be available to women in order to inform decision making around breast cancer treatments.

Investigating the Role of Technologies in Participant Recruitment and Engagement in Health Research

2016-2020

This study aims to investigate issues around participant recruitment and engagement in health research, and to use technologies to improve these issues. Health research often carries out human-based studies and clinical trials which need to recruit participants. However, do we consider the needs of the potential participants in the process? What are their actual needs? What do they expect to get from participating a research project? In this study, we expect to learn more about the thoughts of the participants and look for opportunities to use latest technologies to better link researchers and participants.

#misCOURAGE Down Under

2017-2019

The aim of this study is to explore women’s online health-seeking behaviours at the time of miscarriage and their views on the design and content of a website to host The Australian #misCOURAGE Campaign. The team intends to use the information from interviews and a focus group with women who have experienced miscarriage to develop and refine a pregnancy-related website which will ultimately provide information, advice, support and resources for women affected by miscarriage and host The Australian #misCOURAGE Campaign and Survey.

Health Information-Seeking Behaviours

2012-2016

In this project, we try to understand how lay-people search for health information on the Internet. We have found that people are more exploratory in different scenarios. Additionally, we have derived a model of health information-seeking behaviours. A proof-of-concept website was developed to better support various health information-seeking behaviours. Its source code can be found on GitHub and a sample video can be viewed here.

Applying Wikipedia Analysis Methodology in Teaching and the Development of Related Tools

2011-2013

This research investigates how a "map-like" visualisation can be applied in a teaching environment with tablets (iPad). This software enables the possibility of "exploring" new knowledge in class. This project is supported by the Science and Technology Development Fund (FDCT), Macau, China.

Map-like Wikipedia Visualisation

2010-2011

This project proposes a set of methods to transform the content of Wikipedia into a "map-like" visualisation. As such, people can visually perceive the relationships among Wikipedia categories and co-authoring efforts between Wikipedia articles in an intuitive way.
