I am a Professor of Human-Computer Interaction appointed to the School of Computer Science and the Institute of Cognitive Science at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Canada.
I was a student at the University of Waterloo, and then later at the University of Canterbury and the Dunedin College of Education. I worked in software industry jobs in both Canada and New Zealand. Before I returned to Canada, I was on the faculty in Computer Science at Victoria University of Wellington (VUW), Wellington, New Zealand, where I retain a position as Adjunct Professor.
My interests are in “the secret life of software”: how software can work in rich and subtle ways with human expression and human behaviour. My current projects are on computer security, computer games, and agile software development. I lead the theme on Human-Oriented Security for NSERC ISSNet, co-lead the theme on Agile Software Development for NSERC SurfNet, and lead the project on Security and Privacy in New Media Environments for the GRAND NCE.
